Jerry Seinfeld Performs A “Comic Intervention” On Jon Stewart

Everyone in the media has been scratching their heads on how to write about Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s bigotry towards gays and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s work “treating” gays in so-called “ex-gay therapy.” He apparently said gay people are “barbarians” that need to be “educated” and “disciplined.” Do we report this as straight news? Blow a gasket over how cruel and dehumanizing they are? Even Jon Stewart struggled with how to report on Marcus Bachmann on last night’s episode of “The Daily Show.” That’s when Jerry Seinfeld came to the rescue and prescribed a spoonful of “ex-comic therapy.”

Jon Stewart Pimps Jake Gyllenhaal, Makes Bad Mom Joke


Last night, Jake Gyllenhaal stopped by “The Daily Show,” and while last week, Jake tried to pimp his mom, this time Jon Stewart tried to pimp him to a member of the audience—and Jake said he’d think about marrying her. But then things came back to Jake’s mom in an awkward way. Jon asks, “I don’t know if you’re single, if you’re dating, if you’re looking for love … Have you ever met a girl and just fallen in love at first sight—like just boom!—and then you knew you were gonna go out with her?”

Jake’s response? Keep reading »

On last night’s “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart spoke eloquently about the devastating shooting that occurred in Arizona over the weekend, and the current dangerous political climate. Said Stewart, “We shouldn’t conflate our political opponents with enemies, if for no other reason than to draw a better distinction between the manifestos of paranoid madmen and what passes for political and pundit speak. it would be really nice if the ramblings of crazy people didn’t in any way resemble how we actually talk to each other on TV.” Please watch.

The Rally To Restore Sanity, Auto-Tuned


This weekend, I hightailed it to Washington, D.C., for “The Daily Show“‘s and “The Colbert Report”‘s Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear. It was basically a big old party with amazing sign watching. (My personal faves read: “I Had a Tea Party with Your Mama” and “Palin/Snooki 2012.” The crowd was—how do I put it?—packed like sardines, so there was no chance of seeing a Jumbotron unless you were at least six feet tall. The best the rest of us could do was listen. And for the listeners, the highlight of the afternoon was for sure Jon Stewart‘s monologue. So we’re glad that Auto-Tune The News didn’t waste any time in remixing that shizzle.

If you were at the rally, share your experience in the comments section. Keep reading »
