While Sen. Ted Cruz has been a frequent presence on the various TV news outlets — particularly such cable networks as CNN or Fox News — the controversial Texas Republican will make his late night talk show debut next month.

Cruz, now famous for his mega-filibuster on the U.S. Senate floor prior to the government shutdown, will sit down with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show Nov. 8. Given the fact the Tea Party favorite has been the target of so many late night TV hosts’ jokes — it will be interesting to see how he handles going mano-a-mano with Leno.
