For a night, anyway. Stewart took a break from taking a break from The Daily Show to appear on Egyptian satirist and Daily Show fan Bassem Youssef's TV show. In the 20-minute appearance, shown Friday, Stewart — wearing a black hood — is dragged onto the set by two burly men and described as a captured spy. He is revealed to now sport a scruffy semi-beard and offers the enthusiastic audience a few phrases in Arabic that the AP translates as "Please sit down, I am a simple man who does not like to be fussed over" but sounds for all the world like a Bar Mitzvah boy who has memorized only so much of his Torah reading. Just like at home, the interview mixes fun and serious commentary, plus cooked testicles.
