Tonight’s guests: the Snapchat guy, another former Daily Show correspondent, with one young musician and one old musician!

Tonight’s line up shouldn’t fail to entertain – much ground is covered with a comedian, a businessperson and two very talented musicians! Let’s get cracking!

John Oliver

England-born Oliver has a deep history in stand-up, having performed in the scene since 2001. His big break came about in 2006, when he landed a gig as a correspondent on The Daily Show. Making a name for himself through his segments, and eventually hosting the show in Jon Stewart’s absence, Oliver now hosts his own political late night show, Last Week Tonight on HBO.

Co-founder of social media sensation Snapchat, the 25-year-old CEO left post secondary education to focus on the app that has taken amateur photographers and pic posters by storm! Snapchat is a mobile app through which users can take photos and video and send them to friends – only for them to disappear into the ether after the initial viewing, never to be seen again.

Ed Sheeran

The second Englishman on the show, Ed Sheeran is a massively popular and massively talented singer-songwriter type. You might know him by his massive 2014 hit “Thinking Out Loud.” Sheeran’s trademark is his simple acoustic style and powerful yet understated guitar ballads.

Bill Withers

Yes, the Bill Withers – the soul and R&B legend behind the iconic tracks “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lean On Me,” “Just the Two of Us” and way more classics than there is time to name. Performing and releasing material consistently throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Withers has been in and out of the public eye for the past 30 years – which makes his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert a particularly exciting treat!

So now you are familiar with tonight’s guests! Check them out on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, airing 11:35 et/pt on Global!
