Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper is set to appear on NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" show on Tuesday night.

The former Colorado governor is slated to join actors Paul Giamatti and Jessica Walter on the comedian's hour-long show, which airs at 11:35 p.m. MDST on NBC stations.

It'll be Hickenlooper's second interview with Meyers. The former head writer of "Saturday Night Live" asked the brewpub founder about the state's experience with legalized marijuana on May 23, 2016, during a publicity tour surrounding the publication of "The Opposite of Woe: My Life in Beer and Politics," a memoir co-written by Hickenlooper and Maximillian Potter.

Since launching his presidential campaign March 4, Hickenlooper has been the subject of a handful of jokes on late night TV shows, though most have mined his last name for the yuks.

Last week, Conan O'Brien couldn't seem to get over Hickenlooper's multisyllabic moniker on TBS's "Conan," musing in his monologue whether British actor Benedict Cumberbatch might be his biggest supporter.

Hickenlooper got "The Daily Show" treatment on Monday night, when host Trevor Noah said the candidate has "a name that sounds like a disease you got on the Oregon Trail" alongside a doctored graphic from the popular 1980s computer game about the travails of pioneers.

"It's either that or the name of a local restaurant where all the waiters have those vests with buttons on them," Noah said over laughter from the studio audience.

"It's just like, 'Welcome to Hickenlooper's, our special today is the Hickenlooper chalupa. It tastes like dirt, but it's fun to order!'"
