Publisher's Summary

Hear former Daily Show and Colbert Report executive producer Ben Karlin, comedian Rob Corddry, Daily Show senior black correspondent Larry Wilmore, Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert, and film critic David Edelstein on this edition of Fresh Air.

Ben Karlin left the world of fake news on Comedy Central last year to concentrate on family. Before working as an Emmy award-winning producer for The Daily Show, Karlin was an editor of the satirical weekly newspaper The Onion. He also collaborated with Jon Stewart on his material for the Academy Awards show. (Original Airdate: 4/4/2006)

Rob Corddry is a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Rob left the show for a while to star in his own short-lived sitcom called The Winner. He's also had roles in recent comedy movies, including The Heartbreak Kid, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Failure to Launch, and Blades of Glory. (Original Airdate: 3/8/2007)

Before getting the gig on the hit Comedy Central fake news show The Daily Show, Larry Wilmore was a writer on In Living Color and The PJ's. He created and was executive producer of The Bernie Mac Show, for which he won an Emmy and a Peabody Award. (Original Airdate: 6/5/2007)

Stephen Colbert is the host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report. The show is modeled to parody Bill O'Reilly's show, The O'Reilly Factor. In fact, in a New Yorker review, Nancy Franklin writes, "Colbert resembles nobody more than he does Bill O'Reilly, and like O'Reilly, he conveys fake humility and easy rage toward inappropriate targets." He has a new book, I Am America (And So Can You!). (Original Airdate: 10/9/2007)

Finally, David Edelstein reviews Rendition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. [Broadcast Date: October 19, 2007]

Then, pick up I Am America (And So Can You!) and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Audiobook): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction.
