Did you get Jason his job at The Daily Show ?
No, contrary to popular belief. I don't know if there's a television show in the history of television shows in which you could actually do that. "Yeah, you know what? My husband's really good. Can he have a job?" "Sure!" Like it's so easy to get jobs in television, you can just like nominate someone and then they get the job.
Do you like working together, or do you see each other too much?
Actually, we kind of like working together because it's really the only time that we're together without the baby, although we do have the baby here today, so I shouldn't say that. So, needless to say, there's a lot of making whoopee at work. We like to christen every room. Everyone just gets out of our way. They part like the Red Sea when they see us coming.
Out of all the stories you've shot, which was the most difficult to keep a straight face during?
It rarely feels funny in the moment. It rarely does. We work hard . I think I laughed at someone once. I laughed at this guy who was talking about the advancement of the gay agenda, and how gays made him feel "homonausic," a phrase that he coined, and I laughed. I laughed out loud at him, but he thought I was choking-he thought I was coughing. I literally did one of those shameful laugh-coughs, and he totally bought it. So it all worked out okay.
How did you get your job on The Daily Show ?
I was just so lucky. They actually came to Canada . They were looking pretty specifically for a woman, and I was a woman, and I was in Canada , and so I just very luckily snagged an audition for it. And that was really it: I auditioned in Canada and then did a callback in New York "Â¦. And then I got Jason the job. I said, "Listen, my husband's pretty funny, he's a real cut-up," and they were like, "Let's hire him."
