The Daily Show with Jon Stewart



Christ you lot got on it quickly…Who watches the above men­tioned show? I’m addicted, it’s the most intel­li­gent and polit­i­cally aware(Apart from the old West Wing of course)TV show ever, and may well save democ­racy in the USA. We get last nights show over here, and their appraisal of the new Iraq strategy was just spot on and hilar­ious even though it’s tragic.
I’m so chuffed so many of you stopped by.I am doing all I can to get a US tour of my show, but I need to get my book pub­lished over there to make it happen. Write to Borders and say you want my book!!!
Love to you all
xx
Guy

    I tend to find The Daily Show (and its spinoff The Colbert Report) to be more accu­rate and proper for the events than real news out­lets. And much more sat­is­fying for the soul. Sometimes… all you can do is laugh.

    It sure as hell beats wor­rying… altough I do that too. Counting down the days of the Shrub’s régime, woohoo!

    Nix.

  2. Melissa - January 13, 2007 6:49 AM

    I’m on the com­puter way too much to watch that show.

    But hey, my fin­gers get a work out. So I really aint lazy. aye?

    Typing ya know?
    Melissa(*_*)

  3. Phoenix - January 13, 2007 7:37 AM

    Sure, Mel. Typing. Uh huh. *wink wink, nudge nudge*

    And why wouldn’t we stop by, Guy? Some of us have been fans since a cer­tain bassist started dancing on stage during the Money solo in the Delicate Sound of Thunder video. Or maybe that’s just me, I dunno. LOL!

    Cheers, mate.

    Nix.

  4. Nate - January 13, 2007 2:40 PM

    Yes, ‘Nix that’s where I first saw Guy too and as I said ear­lier, would see him pop­ping up with other bands from then on too.

    I do watch The Daily Show when I catch it on More4 (I’m in the UK Guy).

    I also like a web show called ‘The Show’ hosted by Ze Frank. The con­tent is really off the wall but has sen­sible polit­ical com­ment on world­wide topics thrown in for good mea­sure.

  5. Paul Sexton - January 13, 2007 3:59 PM

    Anything is better than Soapstar super­star!!!!! how bad can it get?

  6. George Gipe - January 13, 2007 7:43 PM

    I watch the Daily Show EVERY night. It’s rare to come across a show that con­stantly says exactly what I am thinking about the goings on in pol­i­tics here in the States. It’s funny, and as you said, spot on.

    Sometimes the guests are a bit dry…the only thing worse than pol­i­tics is the people who write poit­ical books…and they all end up as guests. But the first half of the show, and the “Moment of Zen” is price­less.

    Off to pester Borders…

    George

  7. Guy Pratt - January 13, 2007 10:49 PM

    Just checked Ze Frank…Brilliant!!!
    Thanks for the tip..

    Morning Sir,

    Nice to see you back, nice to know someone has seen some sun, seems summer has for­gotten where Australia is this year.

    I am a watcher of above men­tioned show and a must see is a little Australian show called ’ The Chaser ’ absolutely hilar­ious satir­ical take on the week’s news and cur­rent affairs.

    Karen.

  9. Renee B. - January 16, 2007 5:54 AM

    Daily show is a great show. It makes me laugh every­time I see it. The show I saw today included con­gress giving their props for the BCS cham­pi­onship col­lege game. Nothing is more hilar­ious than trying to see a con­gressperson try and rap. Maybe we have some future Snoops in the house !!! HAHA
    Don’t worry Nix, I like the dancing too. A little hyp­notic.

    Well good night to all

  10. Roland - January 17, 2007 6:53 AM

    Apologies if I’ve missed it some­where, but does the book have a working title yet?

    Here’s one vote for including Boston as a stop if you end up bringing the show to the US! If you do, be sure to allo­cate ample time for a pub crawl and asso­ci­ated recovery (despite our 12:30am last call).

  11. Guy Pratt - January 17, 2007 3:30 PM

    The book is called ‘My Bass and other ani­mals’, like the show..

  12. Julian - January 17, 2007 7:55 PM

    Hi Guy, Happy New Year, Belated Happy Birthday, right now i’ve got all those out of the way I can start being rude! Only jesting Sir.
    I havn’t got any sug­ges­tions for sub­jects for dis­cus­sion but here’s an amusing little tale I heard recently:
    The Pilot of a small single engined Cessna was waiting to taxi to the active runway at Gatwick and was told by Air Traffic Control to “Wait at holding point ‘Charlie’ until the United Airlines Boeing has cleared the taxi way”. As the United Airlines heavy trun­dled past the holding point the Pilot came over the radio fre­quency “Ah thats a pretty little air­craft. Did you make it your­self!” Not to be out done by this elitist jibe, the Cessna pilot retorted imme­di­ately with ” Yes. I’ve made it out of old Boeing parts. Another landing like that and I will finish the other one in the garage!“
    See ya all.

  13. Paul Sexton - January 18, 2007 12:18 AM

  14. Guy Pratt - January 18, 2007 1:36 PM

  17. Richard Meeder - January 19, 2007 10:15 PM

    Happy belated B,day. Keep working on that US tour. I’m trying to get all my musician/​bass friends aware of the book coming out.
    I am working with a drummer friend that remem­bers you from TuesdayNight music club in the early days, who went on to play with Sheryl Crow for a while. Lots of weird stuff back then from the sto­ries I’ve heard.

    Cheers
    RM

  18. Karen - January 22, 2007 12:15 PM

    Hey Sir,

    Heard you’re an Arsenal sup­porter. The guys I work with are all sup­porters of the English foot­ball, so I have picked a team to fit in, I have picked Arsenal. So now we can talk foot­ball.

    Karen.

  19. Guy Pratt - January 23, 2007 10:54 AM

    I am indeed a ‘Gooner’ as we’re known. But I have moral problem with foot­ball, it repersents every­thing that’s crass and greedy about modern society..

  20. Paul Sexton - January 23, 2007 11:27 AM

    Very true Guy, few play for the Shirt any more!

  21. Karen - January 23, 2007 11:54 AM

    By that do you mean feeling betrayed by greedy players and just plain lack of love of the game and increasing pen­e­tra­tion of busi­ness money and processes?

    Um, sounding some­what familiar.

  22. Guy Pratt - January 24, 2007 9:09 PM

    Pretty much..

  23. Julian - January 26, 2007 9:26 AM

    Hi Guy. I am a very low hours PPL. Can only do it spas­mod­i­cally as time and funds com­pete with things in the house and other pri­or­i­ties as listed by my bril­liant wife! She still gig­gles at some of your sto­ries we wit­nessed at your show in November.

    Looking for­ward to seeing the book.

    Cheers

  24. EchoesBob - January 26, 2007 6:01 PM

    How goes the book, Guy?

    I was won­dering if you know if Rick has an album project in the works? Please let him know that we’re eager to hear from him. If I’m being nosey, then smack me..

    Take care.

  25. Julian - January 28, 2007 4:51 PM

    A little tale to lighten up your weekend.

    A young lady with hair of inde­ter­mi­nate colour (so as not to offend the blondes among you!) was sit­ting in club class on a 747 taking off from Heathrow bound for Sydney, Australia with a fuel stop in Dehli. After the “fasten your seat belts” sign went out and the stew­ardesses were busy get­ting the first meal of the flight to all the pas­sen­gers, our young lady vacated her seat and walked to first class and sat her­self down. The stew­ardess looking after first class asked her to move back to club class. The lady said she was going to stay there all the way to Sydney and there was nothing she could do about it! The stew­ardess reported this to the head Steward who when he tackled the lady got the same reac­tion. The same thing hap­pened to the 1st officer and so it was up to the Captain to deal with. He said “I was mar­ried to a lady like this once, I speak their lan­guage”. He went down to the first class cabin and whis­pered in her ear. All the stewardess’s and stew­ards were peering around the corner to see what was hap­pening. Suddenly the young woman got up and went back to her seat in club class. When the cap­tain got back to the flight deck the 1st officer asked him what he had said, ” Oh I just told her that the front end of the aero­plane wasn’t going any furhther than Dehli!”

  26. Paul Sexton - January 29, 2007 10:51 PM

    Why wasn’t it going any fur­ther than Dehli?

  27. Karen - January 29, 2007 11:37 PM

    Being a blonde, living in Sydney, makes sense to me.

  28. Paul Sexton - January 30, 2007 1:21 PM

    didn’t really think any­body would bite.….always one 🙂

  29. Guy Pratt - January 30, 2007 5:27 PM

    Now now you lot..

  30. Paul Sexton - January 30, 2007 6:20 PM

    Sorry about that Karen

    Peace&Love, Paul

  31. Phoenix - January 30, 2007 8:43 PM

    Being a nat­ural blonde (and thus, dyeing my hair red counts as ‘arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence’), I found it ter­ribly amusing. 🙂

    Your mileage may vary.

  35. Tomasz - February 2, 2007 10:12 AM

    Hello,

    I drop here nearly everyday, but this TV pro­gramme is not avail­able in Poland, so I can’t have any opinion. Although Polish troops are in Iraq but it is not a big topic here. more atten­tion is paid only when Polish sol­dier is killed or injured.
    All the best with your book and both tours.
    Looking for­ward for another topics.

    Tomasz

  36. sonicfrog - February 10, 2007 6:26 PM

    Hey All:

    Sonicfrog here.

    Guy, did you play on TNMC? I only remember Dan Schwartz on the liners. But even if you didn’t, you guys had a “six degrees of Kevin Gilbert” thing going on. Wish he was still with us. All my favorite artists seem to end up working together. Hmmm, guess now I’ll have to google David Baerwald and Bill Botrell and see what the’ve been up to lately.

  37. chantelle - February 23, 2007 5:45 PM

    I only watched it as it was on after the ‘Live from Abbey Road’ thingy and I couldn’t be both­ered moving myself to change the channel but yes it was really quite excel­lent.

    The first time I’ve been here and was just won­dering if there will be a dvd of the bass and ani­mals tour?

    Thanks
