Jon Stewart on Bassem Youssef’s The Program (Al-Bernameg) in Egypt (Video) June 21, 2013


Here is the full video of Jon Stewart on Bassem Youssef’s ‘The Program (Al-Bernameg)’ on Egyptian television from Fri. June 21, 2013. See the replay of the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and his counterpart in Egypt below, after the jump.

Watch the full replay video above. Jon Stewart — who is presently on hiatus from his program as he makes his directorial debut during the summer — made an appearance on Bassem Youssef’s show which, like his own, takes a satirical look at politics and pressing issues of the day as he is dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab world.

Earlier this year, when Youssef was subject to an arrest warrant for allegedly insulting Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi, Jon Stewart defended him. Bassem Youssef was later a guest on The Daily Show.

The appearance marked Stewart’s first on Al-Bernameg.
