Jon Stewart in London

Spent an evening with Jon Stewart yesterday. This involved seeing Jon and two writer-producers from the Daily Show read from Stewart's America: The Book.

It was the 4pm show at the Prince Edward theatre in the heart of London's Theatreland on the stage were, normally, Mary Poppins would be flying around with her umbrella. Sinewy American actor/comedian, Woody Harrelson, popped in to help to get the party started right.

The Vol describes the show exactly as how I experienced it. The show was great comedy and the satire was fast, clever and scathing and absolutely hilarious just like I've come to expect from the Daily Show which we in England have been seeing on More4 for the past 3 months or so.

My only gripe was that the ticket price (£26) was way over what was, in the end, three guys reading from excerpts of a book. It just meant that at that price, I wasn't willing to cough up for the book as well. But it was well worth it and he's still the funniest man around with intelligent anti-War satire. Respect.
