This edition: Jon Stewart and Chris Smith
Join Jon Stewart, comedian, actor, director and best-selling author and Chris Smith, a contributing editor for New York Magazine for an evening of spirited conversation to celebrate the release of “The Daily Show (The Book): An Oral History as Told by Jon Stewart, the Correspondents, Staff and Guests.” For almost 17 years, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” brilliantly redefined the borders between television comedy, political satire and opinionated news coverage. It launched the careers of some of today’s most significant comedians, highlighted the hypocrisies of the powerful, and garnered 23 Emmys. In the wake of the 2016 presidential election there is no better time to participate in an evening filled with stories of behind-the-scenes gags, controversies and camaraderie on and off the set of one of America’s most groundbreaking political satires. Interviewed by New York Times chief TV critic James Poniewozik.
