A Farewell from the Land Down Under.

G’day Zoners and welcome to my final goodbye post here at NFZ.

Before I get on to sharing a few of my favourite clips with you, I thought I would first share with you how I first became a fan of Stephen and “The Colbert Report”, and how I first managed to come across “No Fact Zone”.

Six Degrees: Art Edition.

G’day Zoners! I hope your all enjoying April Fool’s Day, and more importantly brushing up on your “Friday” lyrics so you can all sing-a-long with Stephen tonight. As much as I loathe that song I really hope Stephen can put the TGI back in Friday. It was once my favourite day of the week, before that song came along. But I digress.This week in Six Degrees News Jon Stewart makes a cameo in “The Adjustment Bureau”, Jason Jones is co-starring in a new CBS comedy pilot, Lewis Black stopped by “The Late Late Show”, Mark Malkoff will be a guest on “Beer Diplomacy”, Amy Sedaris has a new iPad App, Conan talks about “Conan O’Brian Can’t Stop” and Movits! are touring Canada and The US.

Link: Will Larry King be the new ‘Daily Show’ Senior Senior correspondent?

According to the New York Post: “One source told us, ‘A single conversation has happened. It’s still extremely preliminary. He’ll be on every now and again, like Lewis Black. He’s not joining as a correspondent but a contributor.’ But other sources said King is talking to his close friends as if it’s a done deal.”

Six Degrees: Brain Freeze Edition.

G’day Zoners! I don’t know about you, but I am still stuck in a post Ben & Jerry’s brain freeze of joy. Only Stephen could make chocolate coated potato chips and salty caramel swirl sound tasty. But I digress. In this week’s Six Degrees round-up “Earth (The Audio Book)” receives more award nominations, Kristen Schaal features in a new “The National” film clip, Jimmy Fallon appears at The Paley Center, Allison Silverman appears on “This American Life”, and Conan O’Brien, Jon Stewart and Lewis Black are to be featured in Comedy Central’s tribute to the late Greg Giraldo.

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. She wrote, “As a 15-year-old, not a lot of my friends really watch the ‘Daily Show’ or the ‘Colbert Report’, and I’m a huge fan of both Jon and Stephen, so I really like seeing what other people have to say about their shows on your site. 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!

Six Degrees: Nautical Edition.

G’day Zoners!

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.
