We took a break from our day here in NYC and went to see Jon Stewart's The Daily Show. It is one of the few shows I watch and I just love it. We had great seats and it was fun to see the behind-the-scenes of the show. They put a ton of work into getting the audience - 200 or so people - fired up before Jon arrives. He does a Q&A which was great and then off he goes. Interestingly he is working right up to the death before going to air. Will Ferrell was his guest. He is promoting his new movie - one that is not a comedy. In Jon's opening he mentioned a ludicrous piece of legislation involving gay hate speech described by the Governor of the particualr state with a baseball bat simulating sex. Will Ferrell had no hesitation picking the ball up and running with it. He arrived on stage with a baseball bat and the two of them went hard at that joke for pretty much the whole time. I have no idea what the name of the move was but who cares? It was hilarious. Well, one person cared. The publicists for the movie was right there and there was much debate about a re-do. They ultimately didn't do it which was fine. The level of improv was quite amazing to witness. Very funny people.
