New York Post: David Steinberg gets Hollywood legends to tell all on Showtime
‘Comedy’ central: David Steinberg gets Hollywood legends to tell all on Showtime
By Robert Rorke. @New York Post
David Steinberg had an inkling that Jon Stewart was about to step down from “The Daily Show” when he interviewed him for “Inside Comedy” months before he announced it.
“My first question was, ‘How long do you think you’ll stay in television?’” Steinberg remembers.
Stewart immediately deflected. “He said, ‘Is this what this is? So they hire Steinberg to drop the hammer on me?’”
During the interview, which debuts Tuesday, May 5, at 11 p.m., Stewart cracks jokes about his early days at The Bitter End (“There’d be four Doors cover bands and then you”) and entertains the possibility that God is the biggest jokester of them all.
“The greatest example of that is the scrotum,” Stewart says. “If he doesn’t have a sense of humor, why would you hang something so sensitive outside the body?”
Says Steinberg, “It was all very funny and very off-the-hook.”
