The show airs at the usual time of 9:35pm on RTÉ One.
The Late Late Show has a distinctly Irish presence tonight, with Ryan Tubridy joined in the Donnybrook studio by a range of guests from these shores.
The country's foremost hypnotist and magician Keith Barry will be on the couch to talk the audience through his latest show. He'll also be demonstrating what you can expect from the show, which "explores the blurred lines between reality and deception", and has promised a "big announcement".

In the midst of the ongoing homeless crisis, Alice Leahy will be on hand to discuss the issues pertinent to the problem as well as her Alice Leahy Trust. Having been helping the homeless people of Ireland for over forty years to date, Alice will also be looking back on her life's work, which began in the 1970s when she left her job as a nurse to live in homeless shelter in Dublin.
With The High Kings also set to perform on the show, an enormous fan of theirs in Adam O'Sullivan will return to the show eight years on from having performed with the group after he had been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Adam will be catching up with Ryan with how life has been since, and what stage he is currently at with his illness.
The GAA season recently came to an eventful close, with Dublin cementing their dominance in football by retaining their fourth All-Ireland title in a row, while conversely Limerick brought an end to a painful forty five-year wait for Liam McCarthy glory. Through the lens of Sportsfile, who have published their annual A Season of Sundays book, the Late Late Show will be looking back on some of the highs and lows of the football and hurling seasons.
Adoption in Ireland will also be a topic dealt with, as Tubridy speaks to people who share their own stories and experiences from different sides of the coin and the realities of those situations.
Chanelle McCoy, Marissa Carter and Caroline Foran will all be on the couch, while also providing music will be Mullingar band Fallen Lights.
