Six Degrees: ‘Daily Show’ writer Kevin Bleyer at the Boca Raton Literary Festival

I received this wonderful review of ‘Daily Show’ writer Kevin Bleyer at the Boca Raton Literary Festival this week from Zoner Kelsey D.

I was thrilled when I saw that Kevin Bleyer, a write for the Daily Show, was coming to my hometown of Boca Raton to give a talk.” She was kind enough to do this write-up for all of us – thank you so much, Kelsey!

The Daily Show Toss Recap – 2/2/2011

Who knew Stephen had a side job as a personal shopper? And I’d love to see the Egg Store and Milk Store. And if Jon doesn’t think you can get eggs, milk and pants at the same store, he’s obviously never been to a Super Wal-Mart or Super Target. Then again, Jon does live in Manhattan.
