John Stewart taped The Daily Show at ImaginOn tonight. Taping began at 6 pm but apparently, some people were in line at 8 am! Yes, 8 am. Staff handed out tickets just after 2 pm, and by then there were multiple lines of people waiting for a chance to see Mr. Stewart and the production.
It was well worth the wait. Before the show John entertained questions from the audience. His political correspondents “complained” about how tight the security in the area is, in their feature at the top of the show. John’s special guest of the night was Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Senator Gillibrand put out a call to women to “get off of the sidelines and into the game.” She argued that if more women were in Congress, Congress could focus on crafting solutions to America’s problems rather than engaging in partisan bickering. John was not convinced!
As usual, John took a not so funny subject-politics-and made it entertaining yet informative.
Day three of the DNC…check.
