If you watch The Daily Show, you'll be aware that Jon Stewart's counterpart in Egypt, Bassem Youssef, had a hard time with the authorities for the crime of making jokes.

After Youssef was released, he visited The Daily Show in the US.

Now Stewart has returned the favour and visited Youssef's show. He even speaks a bit of Arabic.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
