He may be running a fake candidacy, but Stephen Colbert is having a very real rally in South Carolina — co-hosted by Herman Cain.

The Comedy Central personality announced on his show Wednesday that he would unite with the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO for the “Rock Me Like a Herman Cain!” rally to get voters — and fans — excited for the comedian and Cain’s “non-candidacies”.

“There will be speeches, there will be cheerleaders, there will be a marching band and a gospel band — this is going to be even better than my rally in D.C.,” Colbert said on the show, referring to a rally he held in Washington last year.
