WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Madame Tussauds Washington says it has created a wax likeness of television personality and political satirist Stephen Colbert.

Colbert is scheduled to help unveil his figure at the attraction Friday.

Madame Tussauds D.C. said it is renovating its Media Room and creating a replica set of "The Colbert Report" where guests will be able to interact and take photos behind the desk, seated next to the figure.

"It's ironic that the last seven days began with one of the most significant days in United States politics and today we are capping it off by announcing a wax figure of one of the nation's most renowned political satirists," Dan Rogoski, general manager for Madame Tussauds D.C., said in a statement Monday. "Stephen Colbert was an ideal choice to immortalize in wax and we know our guests and especially his fans, will enjoy stepping onto the show's set and interacting with his figure."
