The Daily Show is coming to Philadelphia.

During the Democratic National Convention, The Daily Show will film and broadcast four shows from the Annenberg Center on Penn’s campus. The show will be here from Tuesday, July 26th through Friday, July 29th.

“The University of Pennsylvania is proud to welcome The Daily Show to our campus during the Democratic National Convention,” Penn Executive Vice President Craig R. Carnaroli said, in a release. “We hope visitors, students, and local residents will enjoy the show and be part of this exciting event.”

The show previously came to Philadelphia for the 2000 Republican National Convention. Longtime Daily Show host Jon Stewart, who broadcasted from Philly that year, left the show last year. The new host is Trevor Noah, who also performs at SugarHouse on April 23rd.

Tickets for the shows can be requested online. Tickets are not guaranteed; the line is first come, first serve.
