The show also has many guests, usually one each night on the last part of his show. They are authors, actors, politicians, musicians and others. He also sometimes has other guests in other segments in his show, such as Congress members in his "Better Know a District" segment. The show is directed by Jim Hoskinson.
Colbert has also written three books with the writers of his show. The first book from 2007 is called I Am America (And So Can You!) as the character he plays on television.
