David Letterman’s final week on “The Late Show” had better be awesome, because his second-to-last week is pretty stacked guest-wise.
On Tuesday, President Bill Clinton will make his 10th appearance on the CBS late-night talk show.
Joining the former Commander-in-Chief next week will be Howard Stern and Don Rickles (Monday), Adam Sandler (Tuesday with Clinton), Julia Roberts and musical guest Ryan Adams (Wednesday), George Clooney and musical guest Tom Waits (Thursday) and Oprah Winfrey with a stand-up comedy set by Norm Macdonald to close out the week (Friday).
Additionally, “Late Show” Music Director and Bandleader Paul Shaffer will join Letterman for a special interview on Wednesday’s show.
Guests for Letterman’s final three broadcasts — May 18 through May 20 — will be announced next week.
As for the former holder of the nation’s top office and potential future first gentleman, Clinton will discuss his work with the Clinton Foundation whose mission is to promote global health and wellness, increasing opportunities for women and girls, reducing childhood obesity, creating economic opportunity and helping communities address the effects of climate change.
President Clinton last appeared on the “Late Show” on Sept. 23, 2013. He made his first visit to the broadcast nearly 13 years ago, on Sept. 11, 2002 — the one-year anniversary of 9/11.
