Jersey’s Jon Stewart, Colbert in epic election number — with a heck of a surprise
This is a must-see. It happened Monday night on Stephen Colbert's "The Late Show" and features another Jersey guy, Jon Stewart, and even a surprise guest (I don't want to ruin it for you).
Broadway style, a little grubby street girl comes out of the audience saying she won't vote. Of course, in the name of good comedy, they conveniently ignore the fact that she'd be far too young to legally vote anyway. It explores the issue of whether one has a civic obligation to vote versus your right to abstain and make a statement about this year's poor choices.
Between spit takes, toffee from an old man's pants, and oh man that surprise guest, this is great stuff!
Stephen Colbert lives in Montclair and Jon Stewart is from Middletown. They are former "Daily Show" colleagues and Comedy Central hosts and have gotten back together a number of times during the past few months of the election season. They make no secret of who they believe should get your vote.
