We’re getting our first look at who’s booked on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” during its stop in Austin next week – and it’s exactly who you’d expect.

Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis is set to promote her new book, “Forgetting to Be Afraid,” on Monday’s show.

U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, who represents portions of the San Antonio area, will stop by Tuesday.

No word yet who’ll join host Jon Stewart Wednesday, but Austin band Spoon is confirmed for Thursday, the show’s final day on the road.

Tapings will take place at the Zach Scott Theatre, with Stewart and his team of correspondents “delving into the rich mine that is Texas politics” throughout the week for the special “Democalypse 2014: South by South Mess” broadcasts.

“The Daily Show” airs at 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday on Comedy Central.
