Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk who is also the CEO of SpaceX, will be a guest on the second episode of Stephen Colbert’s Late Show. Colbert took over the popular late-night comedy program this fall, succeeding the legendary David Letterman as host. The general trend of the Late Show is to invite guests who are very famous and topical and have experience appearing on talk shows. While the first two guests — George Clooney and Jeb Bush – are exactly that kind of guest, Musk’s appearance is a bit of a change.
Tesla and Uber CEOs on the show
Apart from Tesla’s CEO, another interesting guest on the show will be Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, who will be appearing on the third night. The motive behind inviting them on the show is not very clear for now, but there is a possibility that Colbert will bring more tech and business experts on his shows rather than focusing solely on entertainment.
CBS announced the list of guests on the show for the first week on Monday. Viewers will get to see Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer, Stephen King and Kendrick Lamar on this week’s Late Show, which will debut on Sept. 8, and airs four days a week.
Will it be an interesting show?
SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk will appear on the show with actress Scarlett Johansson on Sept. 9. Along with these two, Kendrick Lamar will also be interviewed and perform as well. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick will make an appearance with Toby Keith, who will be the musical guest on the show for Sept. 10. On Sept. 11, the guests will be comedian Amy Schumer and author Stephen King. Viewers will also get to see Troubled Waters performing and being interviewed.
Talks on the show will be more of a friendly conversations rather than interviews. What makes the Late Show different this season is the fact that Colbert comes from a political background and, therefore he might bring a more critical voice to his discussions with political candidates, especially controversial ones.
