Yesterday TV Rage brought you news about what a great week Stephen Colbert had, as his sister won a primary in South Carolina for a House of Representative seat and Colbert himself was awarded with a Genesis Award. That great has grown today significantly after Comedy Central announced that former President Bill Clinton would be sitting down with the comedian/"pundit" to tape an appearance on The Colbert Report.
This will mark the first time Clinton has appeared on The Colbert Report. The interview will be taped on Saturday, April 6 at the closing session of the sixth annual Clinton Global Initiative University, with a broadcast date of sometime the week of April 8. More than 1,000 CGI U students will serve as the audience during the interview.
“I am thrilled and honored to be interviewing President Clinton, and I assume he is aware this is happening," said Colbert.
CGI U launched five years ago with the purpose of engaging the next generation of leaders from across the globe. The students who participate in it work together to devise and implement different strategies designed at creating positive change in the world. This year's meeting will be held April 5-7 at Washington University in St. Louis.
