Louis C.K. Can't Wait to Be Fat and Gross After He's 'Driven Everyone Away' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 29th 2011 9:30AM
Louis C.K., 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Louis C.K. was on fire when he appeared on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). It was all Jon Stewart could do to get two words in edgewise, he was so busy laughing at C.K.'s gut-wrenching hilarity. It was as if C.K. had prepared a few minutes of his best material and just decided to treat Stewart's audience to a killer set.

In response to a clip Stewart showed from 'Louie,' C.K. opened by talking about how his physique is actually as good as he can get it, because he still has people in his life and he's on TV. So he still cares a little.

"When I've driven everyone away and I'm not on TV anymore," C.K. said, "I'm gonna be -- and I'm excited for it -- that guy with the second belly, the crotch belly."

Jon Stewart Says Fox News Told the Truth, and Then Took it Back (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'We have a feeling that this little television "conversation" between Jon Stewart and Chris Wallace isn't going to end any time soon. Unless Wallace just backs down and stops talking about it altogether. It seems every time Wallace goes to defend himself, 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) is ready to volley the ball right back into their court.

When Jon Stewart was on Wallace' show a few weeks, the host said: "I think we're the counterpoint [of NBC News]. I think that they have a liberal agenda and I think we tell the other side of the story."

Stewart jumped on that "other side" statement as an admission, by Wallace, of a conservative agenda, but Wallace has rebutted that by clarifying his intention.

Cameron Diaz Removes Jon Stewart's Stitches on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Cameron Diaz, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Hopefully Cameron Diaz scrubbed up before her appearance on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). She may not have known about it before she showed up on set, but Jon Stewart was looking for Dr. Diaz this day.

See, it was time to get those pesky stitches out from when he slashed his wrist open mocking Anthony Wiener's press conference. Who needs doctors when you have celebrities? And Diaz was pretty excited about the task as well.

"My mouth is salivating," she told Stewart. "I'm frothing at the mouth, I'm so excited."

The procedure wound up taking up her entire segment, but she did manage to squeeze a few words in about her new film, 'Bad Teacher.' And now she's ready for the sequel, 'Bad Doctor.'

Looking at the Smoking Ban in NYC Parks on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Samantha Bee, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Samantha Bee, a correspondent for 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) went on the streets to talk about the passing of legislation in New York banning cigarette smoking from public parks.

We don't know how she did it, but she found the most amazing section of a public park we've ever seen to illustrate her point. Surrounded by tweaked-out drug addicts, alcoholics and homeless people, she talked to one woman who said the law was to ensure parks were "a place where people could go to relax and to have fun."

We particularly loved the bit, though, when Bee found out that not only can you not light up a cigarette in this park filled with such colorful members of society, but you can't go on the grass either. So this park is apparently just for looking at from behind the ropes and chains, like a grass-and-tree zoo.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone Talk Tony Wins and Broadway, on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Trey Parker'South Park' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are no strangers to controversy, having offended just about everyone by now. But now that they're more mature in years, are they in danger of becoming the kind of Establishment figures that they used to mock so mercilessly?

The pair have written a Broadway musical, 'The Book of Mormon,' which has not only been well received by critics, it also picked up nine Tony Awards.

You'd think this would make the Broadway newbies targets of venom in the famously bitchy, backstabbing world of musical theater, but as they told Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), nothing could be further from the truth.

They say that the Broadway community welcomed them with open arms and has been nothing but lovely to them.

Which is more than can be said for their assessment of a rival show. Stone told Stewart about how when they were prepping 'Book' for the stage all everyone else was talking about was 'Spider-Man,' "but that was before anyone had seen what a train wreck it was." Oh, me-ow.

Jon Stewart Wants J.J. Abrams' Wife, on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

J.J. AbramsJ.J. Abrams stopped by 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to talk about his new movie, 'Super 8.'

He and host Jon Stewart were discussing the trials and tribulations of working in Hollywood, and Abrams said that the weirdest thing about making a movie is that during the post-production process he's with "like, eight people ... all working together for months, in this cave."

After that isolated working experience Abrams then finds it hard to adjust when the movie's been released and total strangers try to talk to him about it. Ever the pragmatist, Stewart has a solution to the problem: Don't work in a cave. "I don't know how things work out there, but how about a grotto?"

Abrams then raised another problem with working in Hollywood -- shallowness. Luckily for him, he's married to a fantastic woman who tells it like it is, so he knows he can trust her.

Jon Stewart Marvels at the Creative Editing in Sarah Palin's Vacation Video (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 14th 2011 7:50AM
Sarah Palin Vacation VideoSarah Palin described her hugely publicized One Nation bus tour of the northeast as a "family vacation," not a campaign trail, so it seems logical that she's made a video of her vacation as a souvenir. Unlike most family vacation videos, however, this one's publicly available, and Jon Stewart has watched it.

After Palin seemed a bit confused about Paul Revere and his role in the American Revolution, her supporters were accused of trying to rewrite history to back up her theories. Now 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) host wonders if they've also been indulging in some creative video editing.

Talking about what he called "the propagand-ie" video, Stewart was astonished by the way that the video's editors had managed to put together a collection of soundbites from reporters "while smoothly editing out any signs of their bewilderment or contempt. ... I guarantee you there's an editing floor littered with phrases like 'for some reason' and 'why?'"

After playing a clip in which reporters sound like they're finishing each other's sentences, Stewart wracked his brains trying to remember where he'd come across that technique before.

Don't Laugh at Conan's Move to TBS... It's the Future

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 16th 2010 11:50AM
CoCo is with TBSA few days ago, Joel gave four reasons why Conan O'Brien made the right move to TBS. He mentioned, among other things, the control Conan will have over the new program and not having to fight for affiliates to air the program instead of 'Seinfeld' or 'The Simpsons.'

A fifth reason can also be added. A broader reason encompassing not just Conan's show, but the current talk shows that populate the cable horizon. You see, cable is the future of late night talk shows. I see you rolling your eyes and chuckling! However, I would hold off in calling me various versions of 'idiot' until you hear me out.

Steve Carell on 'The Daily Show'Steve Carell appeared on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to promote his new movie, 'Date Night.' Unfortunately, even though they worked together for many years, host Jon Stewart had a little trouble remembering who he was. First, Stewart showed the wrong movie clip -- a clip from 'The Hangover,' which starred a different ex-'Daily Show' cast member. Oh well.

In the clip, Stewart mocks the conservative pundit's lively persona with a hilarious breakdown of the term "conservative libertarian," which sheds some interesting light on Bert from 'Sesame Street,' among other things.

But don't take our word for it. Watch the clip after the jump.

The Daily Show, Rep. James ClyburnThe Healthcare Reform meeting is grabbing headlines, but Jon Stewart is more concerned with the lunch menu at the event. On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM), he grilled Rep. James Clyburn about what it all means.

"My colleague on the democratic side of the aisle appears to have gotten cole slaw, yet I have none," said Stewart. "Why is that? Can I have cole slaw, as well? I have clearly been loaded up with starch. That is an attempt by the opposition to weigh me down."

As for Clyburn, he likes salmon, but would prefer fried fish. We don't care who eats what, as long as they're making progress.

Daily Show's Jason Jones Heads to Primetime

Jason Jones'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' correspondent Jason Jones is starring in an ABC pilot 'How to Be a Better American.' Remember when it used to be that to find the next generation of comedy talent, one only had to look at the cast of 'Saturday Night Live?' Well, it's sort of the same, except that now the industry looks to the cast of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.'

Jones is married to fellow 'Daily Show' correspondent Samantha Bee. It wouldn't be surprising if Bee made a few appearances on the show as well. If the show ends up as a ratings success, then Jones joins the ranks of Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Ed Helms, Rob Corddry and Rob Riggle (among others) as having launched their careers from behind the 'Daily Show' desk.

The show is about a father who involves his family on a personal journey to become a better person and they don't want to go. What do you think? Does it sound like a winner?
