Mark your calendars: Jon Stewart has finally announced when he’s leaving his Daily Show anchor desk.

As with his initial retirement announcement, Stewart waited until the final minutes of Monday night’s show to break the news. And while we’ve still got a few more months with Stewart as host, his final show on Aug. 6 will likely sneak up on us.

“I will be wearing a suit, I will more than likely be showered,” he joked. “I’m sorry, I’ll be wearing overalls and I won’t shower.”

But Stewart does hope people will tune in—and he’s even offering fans the chance to win a trip to New York City and two tickets to his final taping.

Comedy Central has yet to announce when new host Trevor Noah will succeed Stewart.
