David Letterman chats with Kanye West, Ellen DeGeneres in new trailer for his Netflix talk show

David Letterman’s been teasing his upcoming chat with Kanye West for a while now, but today we learned who else the one-time king of late night will dissect during his new season of Netflix’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Ellen DeGeneres and Tiffany Haddish will also sit down with the fabulously bearded host, as will philanthropist Melinda Gates and British racer Lewis Hamilton.

Kanye talks bipolar disorder in the above trailer, while Haddish reflects on racial bias in Hollywood and Ellen recalls she and her friends ditching their boyfriends to make out in the bathroom. The interviews themselves are spliced with footage of Letterman in the field, where he braves a racetrack and confounds Kanye with questions about Velcro.
