Colbert-Stewart Lineup Leaked: The Roots, Jeff Tweedy, Sheryl Crow to Perform

As the Stewart-Colbert rallies approach, neither the hosts nor Comedy Central have released much information detailing the weekend's events. Fans should dress up; show up; and be prepared to restore sanity or keep fear alive.

Unable to handle media pressure, the National Parks Service has leaked Comedy Central's permit application. While the line-up may have changed since the application's September filing, The Wrap reports some possible acts.

Via The Wrap, here's the line-up:

10:00 a.m.: The pre-pre-show begins with videos and music on the jumbotron to keep the gathering crowd friendly and entertained.

Noon: The pre-show starts with a performance from the Roots.

12:40: A comedian (to be determined) warms up the audience.

12:57: A video countdown with a show introduction.

1:00: The show kicks off with the national anthem by a musical guest (to be announced).

1:05: Mr. Stewart welcomes the crowd.

1:20: Mr. Colbert enters, and two actors -- Don Novello and Sam Waterston -- perform readings.

1:40: Jeff Tweedy and Mavis Staples perform for 10 minutes, followed by Stewart and Colbert until 2 p.m.

2:15: Sheryl Crow performs for five minutes, followed by speakers and guests (to be determined).

2:30: Musical guests (also still being lined up) come on.

2:40: The show turns to a pre-taped sequence -- The Sanity and Fear Awards.
