The Daily Show & Friends - NY, NY

Wasting time on Facebook has finally paid off for me.  As soon as I arrived at Jenna's apartment I decided to check in with Facebook to see what had happened in the few hours I had been traveling back to the city. (That's what you do when you have too much time on your hands.)  On my home page, I noticed a link to sign up for "day of" tickets to the Daily Show.  So....I clicked on it.... and BOOM, I had tickets for the taping that afternoon.  It couldn't have been more perfect timing.  I'm staying with the famous Jenna Kim Jones (who works at the Daily Show) and she lives three blocks away from the studio.  It was a really great show.  Jon Stewart was hilarious as usual and Judah Friedlander, from 30 Rock, was the guest.  He was on the show promoting his new book.  After the show, Jenna gave me a back stage tour of the entire studio and I met some of the producers/staff/crew.  Jon Stewart even walked by us a couple times.  So crazy!!  Television is such a fascinating world and I'm glad I was able to have a sneak peak.

Here are a couple pics of Miss Jenna Kim Jones making television happen.

  1. Cool. I'm impressed. Now go to Regis for me and get a picture of you and him together. (I'm collecting them -- have one with him and Andrew.) Kelly can be in the picture too. Don't go this week. They are in Las Vegas.

    It's lightly snowing in the Burg with more too come. All of you out there in cyberspace -- count your blessings that you don't live in Rexburg in the winter. I have been out running errands and I hate Rexburg in the winter. Summer and fall are beautiful. Spring is marginal. (Jenna was here performing in Rexburg last year with a comedy group. It's a small world!)
