The Mooch is making a return.
Late Show host Stephen Colbert shared the news on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon that former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci would be a guest on Monday’s episode.
“On Monday 8/14 Anthony Scaramucci will be my guest on @colbertlateshow. This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready! #themooch,” Colbert tweeted, alluding to Scaramucci’s infamous, expletive-laden leaked conversation with New Yorker correspondent Ryan Lizza, which Colbert poked a lot of fun at on his show.

Scaramucci, often referred to as “The Mooch” by Colbert and other late-night hosts, only held his position in the White House for 10 days before resigning. Naturally, the CBS host and others across the dial also played up the humor in Scaramucci’s quick departure.
Following the news of Scaramucci’s resignation, Colbert announced during his monologue how “shocked” he was “by this breaking newch.”
“‘The Mooch’ is toast. The front-stabber has been back-stabbed,” he joked. “He said he was going to fire everybody, and I’ve got to admit, he delivered. That was thorough.” Colbert added, “His going away party can serve what’s left of his welcome cake.”
Scaramucci’s appearance on The Late Show will be his late-night debut following his resignation.
