Here's who is on the show this week:

In a historic week which saw Joe Biden sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, James Comey will be speaking to Ryan about the impact President Biden can make.

The former director of the FBI, will be speaking about what he thinks the future holds for the USA and for former President Donald Trump.

Comey was recently portrayed by Jeff Daniels in the series The Comey Rule, in which Brendan Gleeson played Donald Trump.

This week's episode of The Late Late Show will host a celebration of Irish traditional music with talented performers including Donny Lunny, Andy Irvine, Zoë Conway, Frankie Gavin, Louise Mulcahy, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Jim Higgins, Martin O'Connor, and Edel Fox bringing the power of trad music to viewers at home.

With the 40th anniversary of the Stardust Tragedy taking place next month on Valentine's Day, Ryan will speak to author Lisa Lawlor, who lost both of her parents in the fire that claimed 48 lives, leaving her orphaned at less than two years of age.

Lawlor's novel, Stardust Baby, was released earlier this week.
