Between TV, the internet and live tapings, there are lots of ways to watch the Daily Show without paying anything But getting tickets to a live taping involves planning several months ahead and winning a random lotto. If that kind of long term planning is beyond you, just get yourself to Central Park tonight for the “Daily Show and Friends.”
No, the Daily Show is not forming a spin-off cartoon featuring barnyard animals ala Garfield. Instead, it’s a night of stand-up hosted by Lewis Black featuring John Oliver, Wyatt Cenac, Rob Riggie and Rory Albanese on Central Park’s SummerStage. The best part is that it’s completely FREE, so all you need to do is show up and grab a chunk of grass.
