Frank Skinner says he is "very much looking forward" to his first stab at taking on the politicians on BBC One's Question Time tonight.
The comedian made his political mark last year calling for higher taxes for top earners on BBC Two's This Week.
"Every year when I do my tax returns, I say to my accountant: If you earn a lot of money, you should pay a lot of tax."
The Chancellor, Alistair Darling, is introducing a new 50% income tax rate for people earning more than £150,000.
Frank also presented a recent edition of Panorama looking at the use of swearing and offensive language on television.
That was prompted by the row surrounding the prank calls made by Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand to actor Andrew Sachs, which he felt had gone too far.
He has also said in a recent
article in The Times
that his views on bad language have changed over the years:
"To my horror, I find myself agreeing with Michael Grade and Terry Wogan that there really is too much swearing on television."
Also joining David Dimbleby on this week's programme will be the Environment Secretary Hilary Benn, Conservative shadow health secretary Andrew Lansley, Liberal Democrat transport spokesman Norman Baker, and Welsh Assembly member Leanne Wood.
