Louis C.K. Can't Wait to Be Fat and Gross After He's 'Driven Everyone Away' (VIDEO)

Louis C.K. was on fire when he appeared on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). It was all Jon Stewart could do to get two words in edgewise, he was so busy laughing at C.K.'s gut-wrenching hilarity. It was as if C.K. had prepared a few minutes of his best material and just decided to treat Stewart's audience to a killer set. In response to a clip Stewart showed from 'Louie,' C.K. opened by talking about how his physique is actually as good as he can get it, because he still has people in his life and he's on TV. So he still cares a little. "When I've driven everyone away and I'm not on TV anymore," C.K. said, "I'm gonna be -- and I'm excited for it -- that guy with the second belly, the crotch belly."

Herman Cain Responds to Jon Stewart's Stereotyped Black Dialect: 'Words Are Not Going to Hurt Me' (Video)

It took a couple of weeks, but Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain  has finally responded to Jon Stewart  for mocking him in a stereotypical African-American voice. In a YouTube video posted Wednesday from a speech Cain gave a day prior, he said he wasn’t aware that Stewart made fun of him during a segment on his Comedy Central show until  Sean Hannity  mentioned it him on his radio show. “They played the clip,” Cain told a gathering of supporters in Iowa. “Look, I’ve been called every name in the book because I’m a conservative and because I’m black. Sticks and stones may break my bones, words are not going to hurt me.” (Video is below).

Jon Stewart to Fox News' Christopher Wallace: 'You're Insane' (Video)

Perhaps it was too early for laughs? Making his first Sunday-morning-show appearance on Fox News, comedian Jon Stewart engaged in a serious back-and-forth with the cable news network's Christopher Wallace. The tense dialog was punctuated with Wallace taking aim at Stewart's coverage of Fox News. Wallace's point: Aren't you, as well as the rest of the "mainstream media," as you accuse us, ideologically biased?

Anthony Weiner Scandal: Jon Stewart Misses Opportunity to React on Late-Night Show

It looks like  Jon Stewart  won't get to weigh in on the news that his old pal  Anthony Weiner  resigned Thursday. His late-night show, Comedy Central's  The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,  wasn't scheduled to tape that day. "#FriendlyReminder We are not taping tonight," the show's staff tweeted.

South Park Creators to Appear on the Daily Show - Will They Answer Our Burning Question?

South Park 's midseason finale left a lot of people -- including myself -- wondering if Matt Stone and Trey Parker were calling it quits. The show's creators, who on Sunday became Tony Award winners for their new musical  The Book of Mormon , seemed to be expressing their disillusionment with the show. Through the characters of Stan and his parents, they seemed to express that they wanted to give up making  South Park . But, like all great works of fiction, it can be viewed many ways, and that's just one. Other viewers seem to think that Stone and Parker are just kidding around, and that they don't plan to end the show anytime soon -- just revitalize it. Or, as another point of view has it, to keep it exactly the way it is. But in the wake of all the news surrounding them (a Tony Award's no small thing, either), it seems the duo might speak out about what they plan to do tonight (6/15) on Comedy Central's  The Daily Show with Jon Stewart . In their second appearance on the show this year (they also were the guests in early March), Stone and Parker will undoubtedly discuss their Tony win... But they might also be discussing "You're Getting Old," that much-talked-about episode. Read More...

Sarah Palin's Vacation Video Has Had Some Creative Editing (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin described her hugely publicized One Nation bus tour of the northeast as a "family vacation," not a campaign trail, so it seems logical that she's made a video of her vacation as a souvenir. Unlike most family vacation videos, however, this one's publicly available, and Jon Stewart has watched it. After Palin seemed a bit confused about Paul Revere and his role in the American Revolution, her supporters were accused of trying to rewrite history to back up her theories. Now 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) host wonders if they've also been indulging in some creative video editing. Talking about what he called "the propagand-ie" video, Stewart was astonished by the way that the video's editors had managed to put together a collection of soundbites from reporters "while smoothly editing out any signs of their bewilderment or contempt. ... I guarantee you there's an editing floor littered with phrases like 'for some reason' and 'why?'" After playing a clip in which reporters sound like they're finishing each other's sentences, Stewart wracked his brains trying to remember where he'd come across that technique before.

Jon Stewart Says Herman Cain Does Not Like to Read (VIDEO)

Herman Cain, successful businessman and candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination, has an interesting suggestion for speeding up the legislative process: "Small bills." In his opinion, only bills three pages or less should be allowed. 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) host Jon Stewart took this to mean that Cain is anti-reading. Having chastised him for offering "real solutions to fictional issues," Stewart played a clip in which Cain advanced his idea for short bills. Referring to a bill that was allegedly 2,700 pages long, Cain said "You and I didn't have time to read it. We're too busy trying to live." Stewart carried on with the theme, saying that if Cain's elected as President everything will have to be shorter: "Treaties will have to fit on the back of a cereal box ... The State of the Union Address will be delivered in the form of a fortune cookie."

Jon Stewart Injures Himself on 'Daily Show' Fake Press Conference (VIDEO)

A very funny bit got even funnier on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) when reality invaded fiction. In a send-up of Rep. Anthony Weiner's press-conference about his Twitter photo scandal, Jon Stewart cut himself making a frozen cocktail drink. Yes, it's a completely absurd scenario, but the result was a somewhat serious cut that certainly was bleeding well. Ever the professional -- or not willing to do it over again -- Stewart muscled through, chastising himself for not being harder on Weiner, and then ultimately resigned from 'The Daily Show.' When John Oliver came out to announce he was taking over, even he had to acknowledge the injury. "That's a genuine problem," he admitted.
