The Daily Show goes to D.C. for week of tapings before 2010 Congressional midterm elections

You may not care about politics and elections in a midterm year, but the folks at The Daily Show aren't letting it slide by unnoticed. In fact, Jon Stewart and company will be taping a week's worth of shows straight from Washington, D.C., at the Shakespeare Theatre Company's Sidney Harman Hall.

The shows, from Monday, Oct. 25, through Thursday, Oct. 28, will be called "When Grizzlies Attack: The Daily Show Midterm Teapartyganza." Tickets for the tapings are available only through the show's site — wait, correction! The Daily Show's site already says that tickets are sold out. That was fast. Go to The Daily Show's ticket site and plug in your information and stay tuned to see if tickets become available.

Previously, the show has hit the road to produce episodes in Philadelphia (2000), Los Angeles (2000), D.C. (2002), Boston (2004), Columbus, Ohio (2006), Denver (2008) and Minneapolis (2008), all as part of its "Indecision" election coverage.
