House Democrats will end their annual retreat not with a whimper or a bang. Instead, they’ll go out laughing.

Comedian Stephen Colbert will address their caucus on Friday.

Colbert, the satiric host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” was invited to speak by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

On his own show, Colbert is the one putting his guests on the hot seat, albeit in a humorous way. He’ll be getting a taste of his own medicine Friday, when Pelosi will interview him after his remarks.

Colbert may even do a bit of campaigning for a family member at the gathering. His sister, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, recently launched a bid to become the Democratic nominee in the special election to replace Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) in the House.
