At the 92nd Street Y last night, Jon Stewart talked with Terry Gross about politics, the media and — of course — himself. In the meantime, he was sure to play to his core 92Y audience: the Jews.
Here are some of the shout-outs he made to the tribe:
“It’s a pleasure to be here at the 92nd Street Y. This is actually the third holiest place in the Jewish religion. I believe it goes: Wailing Wall, Zabars, here.”
Gross: Are you nervous?
Stewart: Am I a Jew? Is that what you’re asking?
On his brother, Larry Leibowitz, chief operating officer of the New York Stock Exchange: “Changed his name from Stewart. Wanted to seem more ‘financial.’”
