The complete uncensored history of the award-winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as told by its correspondents, writers, and host. For almost 17 years, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart brilliantly redefined the borders between television comedy, political satire, and opinionated news coverage. It launched the careers of some of today´s most significant comedians, highlighted the hypocrisies of the powerful, and garnered 23 Emmys. Now the show´s behind-the-scenes gags, controversies, and camaraderie are chronicled by the players themselves, from legendary host Jon Stewart to the star cast members and writers - including Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Steve Carell, Lewis Black, Jessica Williams, John Hodgman, and Larry Wilmore - plus some of The Daily Show´s most prominent guests and adversaries: John and Cindy McCain, Glenn Beck, Tucker Carlson, and many more. This oral history takes the listener behind the curtain for all the show´s highlights, from its origins as Comedy Central´s underdog late-night program hosted by Craig Kilborn to Jon Stewart´s long reign to Trevor Noah´s succession, rising from a scrappy jester in the 24-hour political news cycle to become part of the beating heart of politics - a trusted source for not only comedy but also commentary, with a reputation for calling bullshit and an ability to effect real change in the world.

Now, for the first time, the people behind the show´s seminal moments come together to share their memories of the last-minute rewrites, improvisations, pranks, romances, blow... 1.

A fun, sexy, new standalone from New York Times best-selling author Aleatha Romig. He´s sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there´s the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we´ve all heard the rumors, the ones that say he´s up for any challenge. But I can´t see him that way. He´s my boss - technically one of the owners of the company where I work - and definitely not in my league. Men like him don´t notice women like me, and they don´t date them. And I don´t date men like him. Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I´m also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it´s not real. It´s blackmail. For one weekend, he´s my plus-one. Beautiful and unobtainable. From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she´s been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally. Not her. Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that - fall to her knees - guess who happens to catch us? It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn´t get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin´s wedding, I´m going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one. You love her darker side. Now it´s time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new standalone romance, Plus One. 1. Language: English.
