Jon Stewart at the beginning of The Daily Show in 1999

Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show But It Will All Be OK…Eventually

This is what I’ve been telling myself anyway. Today Comedy Central announced that Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show. In 1998 I got married and moved to the NYC area. I was working here and there as an extra on various TV shows and movies and auditioning for better things, but I had a […]

Today’s Agenda: easing back in

So I’m not sure how four days of doing nothing but cooking, eating and spending time with family has gotten me this far behind, but it has. Just when it felt like I was getting things under control, I’m buried again. But, at least I’m buried in good stuff. I’ll be jumping onto a conference […]

Alone on V-Day? Not quite

Dear Jon, I want to thank you for being with me this Valentine’s Day morning.  My husband is out of town with the kids, so if it weren’t for you I would’ve been alone.  And even though you didn’t make me breakfast in bed, you did keep me company while I made my egg-and-cheese sandwich, […]

Jason Jones made me choke on a pretzel

I haven’t posted anything from The Daily Show for a while.  It’s been consistently amusing, but nothing that jumped out as “Oh my God I have to share this with everyone I know or their lives will be incomplete.”  Until now.  I was simultaneously folding laundry, eating pretzels, and watching Jason Jones’ report from Iran, […]

This week’s time sucker: Sock and Awe

This week’s time sucker found me.  Pretty much every show I watched and every website I went to talked ad nauseum about the Bush shoe-ducking incident.  There were some great jokes, like this one, which I think was on Leno: In dodging the shoe Bush did something he’s never done before, he leaned to the […]

Mike Huckabee: thoughtful, well-spoken, and wrong

When listening to the debate back and forth about gay marriage, it’s easy to take cheap shots at the homophobe with three teeth who’s afraid to catch “teh gay.” It’s easy to dismiss those types and assume that anyone who is fervently anti-gay marriage is dumb, or a religious nut, or crazy. Rarely do you […]


This is what’s been floating around in my head for the past week. I need to clear it out to make room for more. *** Stephen Colbert on November 5th: You see, for years we have crammed fear down your throat but this time you refused to swallow it.  We had big plans!  Last night […]

Jon Stewart is my errand boy

[Big update to this post!] OK, thanks to my incredibly lazy birthday yesterday, I’ve been playing catch-up all day and this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and finally write what happened last night at the Daily Show taping. I’ve been to dozens of talk show tapings.  On my own, I’ve been […]

Palin as President and The Daily Show

OK, if it seems like all I’m doing today is sitting around on the computer, well, that’s exactly what I’m doing.  It’s my birthday.  This is how I want to spend it.  I have a ton to do, but I choose not to do any of it.  Did I mention it’s my birthday?  Of course, […]

Did you watch the Emmys?

I did, and for once I actually watched them the night they aired.  In past years I haven’t gotten around to watching them until I already knew who won everything, so it’s nice to be surprised this year!  Here are some highlights and lowlights. The opening was, well, painful.  The show was hosted this year […]
