Jon Stewart’s Most-Used Joke

Last night, he used it twice in one episode


My Favourite Type of DAILY SHOW Routine

It’s the type of routine where Jon Stewart is not the straight man. Usually Stewart feeds straight lines to the “correspondents” and reacts to their replies, and that’s fine; he represents us, the normal person trying to hold onto real-world logic while under bombardment from news-media inanity. But every once in a while, as in last night’s piracy routine with John Oliver, the writers will reverse it: they’ll make the correspondent the straight man, trying to do a serious report on an important issue, and Stewart will be the guy who’s focused on trivialities.
