How Colbert gets those big names on his show

I've always been wondering how Steven Colbert gets so many high profile guests, well Neal Katyal, who was on the show earlier this week, points out one perk of going on the show:

So I survived my time defending Hamdan and the Court on Colbert Report, I think. He was a real gentleman both before and after the show. And in the green room they give you a Colbert Tote bag with, I'm not kidding, a lot of vodka.
Hmmm...I wonder if that was how he lured the Straussian Harvard professor Harvey Mansfield to visit the show?
