Jon Stewart reminisces with Louis CK about The Comedy Cellar in final Daily Show guest segment

Jon Stewart welcomed Louis CK as his final official guest on The Daily Show for his penultimate episode on Comedy Central on Wednesday night, and the two comedians quickly began reminiscing about their younger days at the Comedy Cellar, and even just last Wednesday night at the Cellar. Here is their extended conversation. This is the part they cut from the broadcast, all of which pertains to their time at the Comedy Cellar and keeping coming back to stand-up comedy.

Francisco Ramos was born in Venezuela and lives in L.A., “which makes me Mexican.” Man, that’s such a common joke that Carlos Mencia stole it from someone...

And I don’t mean that in a he-walks-dogs-in-my-neighborhood kind of way, although that’s true, too — the comedian explained in his “Judges Cut” set on Tuesday’s episode of America’s Got Talent that earning $11,000 a year in comedy means the government doesn’t need your money as much as you need it. Which lends itself, so to speak, to some drastic measures. Thankfully for Vider, he’s moving on to the live elimination rounds which start next week on NBC from Radio City Music Hall. That puts him one step closer to the $1 million...

“Paul Scheer and I made a comedy special on a moving bus. A lot of people got killed of course.” That’s what Rob Huebel says, but of course, the name of their weekly comedy showcase at the UCB Theatre in Hollywood is called CRASH TEST.
