Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart is set to salute the troops with a few good laughs, and he’ll have some help from fellow late-night alum David Letterman and filmmaker Judd Apatow.

According to the Associated Press, the three will perform at a USO comedy show next Thursday in observance of Military Appreciation Month.

President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and second lady Jill Biden will attend the event at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, along with 1,500 service members and their families. The show will mark the 75th anniversary of the USO and the fifth anniversary of Joining Forces, an initiative launched by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, to support military families.

To further raise awareness for the cause, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden are scheduled to appear together on Monday’s episode of The Voice and Wednesday’s episode of The Night Shift, and the first lady will cameo on NCIS on Tuesday.
