(CNN) - President Barack Obama takes a seat on Jay Leno's couch Wednesday, but hardly to relax - his appearance will come with just under two weeks left until Election Day.
The interview, which the White House announced Monday, on NBC's "Tonight Show" will also be approximately a week after he sat in the hot seat on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show."

On 'The Daily Show,' last week he and host Jon Stewart fit in a few laughs, but also discussed how his administration handled the situation in Libya and the second presidential debate.
Leno has landed his share of punch lines about the campaign. After Obama's performance at the first presidential debate was widely panned, Leno noted that the evening was also Obama's 20th wedding anniversary.
The first couple "celebrated at a restaurant called Bourbon Steak. That was the name of the restaurant they went to. Bourbon Steak," Leno said. "I understand (first lady) Michelle had the steak to celebrate the occasion. And the president had bourbon to help forget the debate."
It will be Obama's fifth appearance on "The Tonight Show," NBC said, and his third as president.
The president's 2009 sit down with Leno was the first time a sitting president appeared on a late-night comedy program for a purpose other than campaigning.
He appeared on the program during his first presidential bid, a campaign Leno joked about earlier this month in light of the latest job numbers.
"The good news for the White House is unemployment has dropped to 7.8%, right where it was when President Obama took office," Leno said. "So Obama's gone from 'change you can believe in' to 'can you believe there's no change?' "
