  • Sanity rally, L.A.-Style [VIDEO]

    By Susan Freudenheim

    October 30, 2010 | 3:02 pm

    If 10 million gathered for the Rally to Restore Sanity on the mall in Washington, D.C., as Jon Stewart proclaimed (really, probably more like a few hundred thousand), then there were at least 1 million in Los Angeles’ MacArthur Park on Saturday (or maybe more like 2,000) all...

  • Sanity rally: Now that we are all friends, what do we do?

    October 30, 2010 | 2:06 pm

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - One thing to be said for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Restore Sanity and/or Fear Rally today in Washington: they didn’t pull the transparent trick that Glenn Beck did last month with his Restore Honor Rally.  Beck, the right-wing talker, used his...

  • Jon Stewart fans to bring rally to restore sanity to Los Angeles

    By Ryan Torok

    On Oct. 30, as talk-show host Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity and Stephen Colbert’s March to Keep Fear Alive take place in Washington, D.C., they will be simulcast at a Los Angeles rally at the Levitt Pavilion at MacArthur Park.

  • Waiting for Sanityman: Can Jon Stewart save America?

    By Marty Kaplan

    October 13, 2010 | 10:41 am

    The fate of our country won’t be decided by a politician.  It will be determined by a comedian.

    Not long before Jon Stewart announced his Rally to Restore Sanity, he told a New York magazine writer why he and his crew on “The Daily Show” would never do something like that. “We’re...

  • Stewart takes shots at Sanchez

    October 4, 2010 | 12:04 pm

    “The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart jabbed back at fired CNN anchor Rick Sanchez.

    Sanchez was fired Oct. 1, a day after he suggested that Jews run the news business and called Stewart, who is Jewish, a bigot.

    During the taping Oct. 2 of a Comedy Central benefit to raise money to...

  • Emmy Awards: Top Ten Jewish Moments

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    August 29, 2010 | 11:06 pm

    It’s fitting that the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 29 showed a clip of this year’s Oscar ceremony—the one where Steve Martin decreed that in “Inglourious Basterds,” Christophe Waltz played a Nazi “obsessed with finding Jews.  “Well, Christophe,“ Martin added,...

  • A self-respecting Jew in Hollywood

    By Danielle Berrin

    September 9, 2009 | 7:59 pm

    Rob Kutner is a veteran comedy writer for “The Daily Show” and author of the tongue-in-cheek “Apocalypse How” (Running Press, 2008). Having just returned to Los Angeles to work for “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien,” he talks about being an observant Jew in...

  • Is Jim Cramer Jewish?

    By Rob Eshman

    March 14, 2009 | 10:28 pm

    Google the question, “Is Jim Cramer Jewish?”  Go ahead—about 500,000 web surfers already have.  For a long time, the first result to pop up was a forum entry at stormfront.something-or-other, the Internet’s safe harbour for Frustrated White Males.  The entry offers only this...

  • Sandler, Stewart, “Mad Men” creator make Forward 50

    By Danielle Berrin

    November 18, 2008 | 5:57 am

    The “Forward 50,” a list of prominent Jewish Americans compiled by the New York Jewish weekly has featured a whopping three Jews from the film and television industries. If this is the best they could do for their 2008 culture and media set, I’d like to know what other areas are...

  • VIDEO: The Daily Show—Jewish voters in Florida assess debate

    September 30, 2008 | 3:39 pm


    Comedy (?) from The Daily Show. Post-debate analysis reveals John McCain is going to die soon, and Michelle Obama has a big butt. Are these Florida swing voters hilariously out of touch, or simply telling it like it is?  Wyatt Cenac reports.

     

  • Jon Stewart traps Republicans in their own politicking

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    September 5, 2008 | 1:55 pm

    My primary criticism of Bill Maher’s “Religulous” was that it argued apples (religious people) were absolutely bananas (insane) by almost exclusively focusing on kumquats (the strangest fruits you’ll ever eat). To Jon Stewart’s credit, he skewers his victims not by often choosing the biggest target but by trapping the leaders of our world in their own words.

    The above video was brought to you by my wife, the

    liberal lunatic in our divided house

    sound thinker who keeps this reluctant Republican balanced.

  • The Daily Show ripped me off!

    By Jay Firestone

    August 6, 2008 | 8:07 pm

    I hate to start my blog off like this, but its necessary.  The Daily Show with Jon Stewart totally ripped me off. As many of the VideoJew watchers know, I’m a huge fan of the elderly Jewish scene.  I’ve learned Mah Jongg and even attended the 94th Annual Hadassah convention (see...

    By Tom Tugend

    January 24, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    After some relatively lean years, Hollywood's Jewish talent -- as well as Israel's -- made a solid showing as nominations for the 80th Academy Awards were announced at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    The biggest winners were brothers Ethan and Joel Coen, whose thriller "No Country for Old Men"...

  • Weisz Gets Gold;  ‘Munich’ Out in the Cold

    By Tom Tugend

    March 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    "Munich" and "Paradise Now," two films subjected to considerable controversy in the American Jewish community and Israel, came up empty-handed at Sunday evening's Academy Awards ceremonies.

    Not at all controversial was the selection of Rachel Weisz as best supporting actress in "The...

  • It’s No Joke—Stewart Does Oscars

    By Keren Engelberg

    March 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The new Oscars' host and the latest Jew to take on the role is -- drumroll, please -- Jon Stewart, the comedian and host of Comedy Central's mock news program, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." Stewart is the latest in a long line of comedians, including Johnny Carson, Bob Hope,...
