Critic: Obama, Stewart weren’t very funny together

Washington Post
Hank Stuever says “a surprise moment, or a difficult question, or a failed attempt at humor” never quite arrived on Wednesday’s “Daily Show.” He wonders if “anyone in Elitistland [is] allowed to say we are slightly tired of [Jon Stewart] and his shrugs, his mock gasps, his pretend girly-man squeaks of excitement in the promo touting the Obama interview?”
> Stewart didn’t want to push too far when face to face with Obama
> “Stewart played a comic, not a courtier, to Obama on his set”
> “Jon Stewart, you have arrived,” writes Deggans
