Richard Lewis on 'The Daily Show'Comedian Richard Lewis was on 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), where he spent his five-minute segment starting and stopping anecdotes and jokes, and never really getting to any point or punchline.

As the segment came to a close, Lewis attempted to tell a religious joke, but kept getting distracted by tangentially related things that were popping into his mind.

"Complete one thought," Stewart finally said. "Just one. You had five minutes. You can get one. Just one. Just follow one through."

"Okay ... I lost it man," Lewis admitted.

At that point Stewart told Lewis he was out of time. This caused Lewis to jump out of his seat, demand 20 more seconds, and begin to tell yet another new joke.

Stewart, exasperated, stood up himself, and told Lewis the segment was really over. He did, however, promise Lewis the conversation would continue and he'd put the whole thing on 'The Daily Show' website.
