Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef has done it again: Securing a guest spot on one of American television's top talk shows. 

"The Egyptian Jon Stewart" appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night, and we couldn't be more proud.

Bassem made his entrance to the studio in true, well, Bassem-style, dancing his way to Colbert like this:

During his interview, the former heart surgeon thanked Colbert for "hosting Middle Easterners on his show."

He also discussed his new book, "Revolution for Dummies: Laughing through the Arab Spring," without missing the chance to promote his upcoming stand up show at the Town Hall in New York on March 21 - the same day his book comes out (and you'll even get a free signed copy with your ticket) and his documentary "Tickling Giants."

And of course, Bassem's interview wouldn't have been complete without taking a dig at America's new president, Donald Trump.

"We just need to focus on getting rid of the mole," Bassem told Colbert, referring to Trump as America’s healthy democracy's big orange mole. (Hilarious).

You can watch Bassem's awesome interview below.
