Colbert first announced the surprising guest on Twitter before his show aired Wednesday night.

Apparently not wanting to play a carnival game with Jimmy Fallon, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has agreed to appear on Stephen Colbert's "The Late Show" on Monday, August 10.

The comedian added, "This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready!"

This will mark Scaramucci's first televised interviews since leaving his Washington DC gig. In an interview with reporter Ryan Lizza published on July 27, Scaramucci used a string of curse words and leveled insults at his colleagues.

The doomed spin doctor called then White House chief of staff Reince Priebus a "paranoid schizophrenic" and made derogatory comments about Steve Bannon, the chief strategist.

Earlier, Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane told MPs that it was their choice to do what was best for the country. South African president Jacob Zuma survived a no-confidence vote held by the country's parliament on Tuesday.

Scaramucci was removed the same day Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly was sworn-in. On Sunday, he'll speak to George Stephanopoulos‏ on This Week, followed by a Monday visit to the Late Show.

The Mooch also accused reporter Lizza of recording his now infamous New Yorker interview without his permission.

Remember also that Colbert is one of President Trump's vicious critics on television.

The former Wall Street financier was sacked days after launching an expletive-laden attack against senior White House staff.

"Thankfully, faced with the greatest challenge of his presidency, Donald Trump stepped up, and in a moment of pure statesmanship, de-escalated the rhetoric and brought calm to our anxious nation", Colbert said.
