Is Columbus the center of the political universe? Jon Stewart apparently thinks so...

According to Gongwer News Service's Ohio Report:

Indecision Ohio: It's official: the Buckeye State is now firmly ensconced in the national conscious as a major player in this year's midterm election cycle. Why else would Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" plan to record a week's worth of installments from the Ohio State University campus in Columbus?

Under the banner of "Indecision 2006," the politically-minded half-hour show of self-described "fake news" will stage its "Battlefield Ohio: The Daily Show's Midwest Midterm Midtacular" at OSU's Roy Bowen Theatre. The Oct. 30-Nov. 2 segments will be taped earlier on those dates for airing at 11 p.m.

Comedy Central said in announcing the show's plans, "Host Jon Stewart will be joined by his team of award-seeking commentators and correspondents as they seek to answer the age-old question: Just what the hell is a buckeye?"

It will be the fifth road trip for the series, which previously taped shows in Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Anyone interested?

Thanks for heads up, Mike and Jason. I'm going if tickets are still available...

But it looks like all tickets are gone. Here's an email I received:

"We have reseived your e-mail regarding tickets for The Daily Show
at O.S.U. Unfortunately, due to an overwhelming response, we are no longer accepting ticket requests. Thanks."

For those, who don't know it yet, one free ticket to "An Evening with Jon Stewart & The Daily Show" will be given for free to OSU students, at Ohio Union starting at 5p.m. this Monday. It's not taping of the show, as I understand, but may be something even better...
