President Obama is heading to New York next week to pull up a chair next to the "Daily Show's" Jon Stewart before the late-night political comedian calls it quits.

On Tuesday Obama heads to Pittsburg to address the 115th Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention. Afterward, he'll head up to New York City for some levity and to, presumably, bid Stewart farewell.

His appearance "should be entertaining," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Friday.

After 16 years in the anchor's chair on Comedy Central's "Daily Show," Stewart's last episode is slated for Aug. 6. Thirty-one-year-old Trevor Noah, a stand-up comic from South Africa, is replacing him.
