Stephen Colbert filled his first week hosting The Late Show with a diverse roster of guests, including Amy Schumer, presidential candidate Jeb Bush and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. But Thursday night, the Comedy Central alum will bring on one of his own, new Daily Show host Trevor Noah.

CBS announced Wednesday that the 28-year-old comedian will replace Naomi Watts as a guest on Colbert’s Thursday show, which will also include an appearance from United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and a performance from Chris Stapleton. As previously scheduled, Lupita Nyongo’o and Senator Bernie Sanders will join Colbert on Friday’s program.

Noah begins hosting Comedy Central’s Daily Show, which he took over following Jon Stewart’s departure in August, on Sept. 28.
