Mayor Bill de Blasio will be making his first appearance on late night TV as a guest on The Daily Show next week.

Mr. de Blasio, who has become frequent subject on the show will make his debut this Monday, February 3 at 11 p.m., according to a Comedy Central release forwarded by the mayor’s office.

Most recently, Mr. Stewart skewered Mr. de Blasio over his “forkgate” controversy.

“Look, I understand there’s a learning curve to be the mayor,” he added, “but here’s lesson No. 1: Learn how to eat your city’s signature dish.”
