Trending: Salesforce’s $15.7B Tableau deal is a defining moment for the West Coast tech ‘megalopolis’

Late-night talk show host and all-around funnyman Stephen Colbert is the latest celebrity to lend his voice to Google’s navigation app Waze.

As part of the kickoff for CBS’ The Late Show, Colbert’s voice is now available on Waze to help navigate your trips until Sept. 22.

In the video, you’ll see Colbert take off on a fake drive, as he changes “the settings to a voice he can trust…Stephen Colbert,” and hear some samples from his audio: “Uh, traffic, my least favorite kind of jam.”

Of course, you can see Colbert back in action next week, on Sept. 8, when he takes the helm of The Late Show.

Earlier this summer, Waze tapped the powers of the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to give navigation instructions.

The celebrity voiceovers are proving a good promo tool for Waze, and hopefully making driving a bit more fun, too. Waze also announced that upcoming guests this fall will include the New England Patriots’ (boo) Rob Gronkowski and Neil Patrick Harris (yeah!) to promote his new show Best Time Ever.

I think Waze needs some female voiceovers, don’t you think?
