From the AP story on CTV.ca:
Giving its green screen a temporary rest, the Comedy Central series will air “Operation Silent Thunder: `The Daily Show’ in Iraq,” several onsite dispatches filed by Senior War Correspondent Rob Riggle.
Riggle will provide what the network calls “in-depth coverage and insights from the front lines.”
Riggle is a major in the U.S. Marine Corps reserves. I saw him in Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story, and he was very funny as a Corps-inspired paintballer (“when I get out there, I’m 110 per cent; it’s just Kill! Kill! Kill!”).
But I gotta say, I haven’t been overly impressed with his Daily Show work to date. Give me John Oliver, Larry Willmore, Samantha Bee or Aasif Mandvi any time.
