If you’re looking for a study break, look no further than Lisner Auditorium.

Stephen Colbert will film an episode of “The Colbert Report” in the auditorium on Monday. Students can enter an online lottery to win free tickets.

“Washington has been the Report’s second home, and I will be returning on Monday to show it the same affection the British did in 1812,” Colbert said on his show Tuesday.

Students can only enter the lottery once and must complete the form by 10 a.m. on Thursday. Those attending must be in line by 1 p.m. on Monday, and the taping will end at about 5 p.m.

Colbert, who hosts the award-winning, nightly satirical news show, last spoke on campus in 2007 with NBC’s Tim Russert.
