"Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot."
-- Charlie Chaplin
If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.
In the 2000s The Daily Show was truly remarkable and must watch tv.
It basically kept a lot of people sane and always pointed out the hypocrisy of the political class, while also poking fun at some really bizarre aspects of pop culture.
Jon deserves this and I'm glad he got it.
I haven't see the new show but I've heard it's good, but not as consistent as The Daily Show.
