The Daily Show Writers

 

Splitsider had a quick write-up on The Paley Center’s 2008 interviews with writers of the The Daily Show.

The advice they give in the video above is true for any dream profession: you have to go out and do things to help you get ahead, because if you don’t, other, more motivated people will and they will will leave you behind in the dust! (Ira Glass gives similar advice)

 

News junkies + Comedians + Witty writers = Daily Show Writers

 

Even though Jon Stewart is the front man, it is a team effort.

 

I love hearing about behind the scenes stuff and auditions and finding out who knows who (John Oliver knows Ricky Gervais).  Probably why I also love WTF with Marc Maron.
