Jon Stewart sounds like a prick.
Wow, the whole thing is so incredibly passive-aggressive. Is that a Daily Show thing or a showbiz in general thing?
Something I've observed about comedians (and that I've been told by them) is that comedy seems to attract insecure, depressive people.
I've heard the same thing.
Assuming she wasn't exaggerating for effect, or just plain making stuff up, I didn't think Jon sounded like a prick, I think he sounded like he's sick of crazy showbiz types and doesn't have time for their bullshit. I have way less patience for that kind of crap than Jon showed. Personally I admire his restraint (and everyone else's).
But I think people should take her story with a grain of salt. She's a comedy writer, so it's reasonable to think she took a bit of . . . license with her story.
Yeah, that makes a lotta sense.
The Daily Show does sound a little... "passive-aggressive" isn't exactly the right word, but not telling people that they're fired so you don't hurt their feelings? That's a little... odd.
But yeah, this makes a lot of sense. And she's not just a comedy writer, she's a writer/performer who's actively promoting herself. Which doesn't necessarily mean that she's taking some license here, or that she'd do it maliciously, but I really wouldn't be surprised if she decided to, um, pep up the story a bit.
She sounds psycho, but still I suppose I won't be bearing Jon's children after all. He does sound like a tad of a prick.
The "I wish my husband had one of those" retorts was actually pretty funny.
