Jon Stewart welcomed “Daily Show” alumnus Rob Corddry to the anchor desk Thursday (March 12), and he comments that it’s nice to see what his former co-stars go on to do after they leave.
“When you guys all leave, I always feel like the fourth-grade teacher, like my students leave and then they come back at like 18 and they look at me like, ‘Oh, you poor little punk-a** boy,'” says Stewart. But he genuinely wants to know what life is like out there.
If Corddry is to be believed, life after “The Daily Show” means a lot less cable news and a lot more cocaine.
“When I was here, I was watching two CSPANs at once. I had two remotes. I have not watched a 24-hour news channel since,” says Corddry. ” … I do so much cocaine. An impossible amount of cocaine. It’s ridiculous.”
Probably only one of those things is actually true. Also, what does Corddry recommend for all the fans out there who are trying to prepare for Stewart’s departure? Surely cocaine is not the answer to that as well.
