John Hodgman Talks to Al Madrigal About The Daily Show and Al’s Stand-Up Special

Al Madrigal has been on The Daily Show for almost two years, but it's hard to not think of him as the new guy: Four of his five co-correspondents have been there for more than six years; Samantha Bee has been there almost ten!

And his success likely comes from his fifteen years as a fantastic stand-up, which we're reminded of with his one-hour special, Why Is the Rabbit Crying? , premiering today at 11 p.m. EST on Comedy Central. To mark the occasion, we enlisted fellow Daily Show contributor and " Daily Show Live" tour-mate John Hodgman to speak with Madrigal. Herewith, the friends discuss what it takes to impress your kids, and the critical difference between tricking Daily Show interview subjects and just quietly letting them say dumb things.  Read More...
