‘Daily Show’ Chases the Dragon in China


Comedy Central Wednesday announced The Daily Show with Jon Stewart next week will feature special reports by senior foreign correspondent Rob Riggle from various cities and landmarks inside China as the 2008 Summer Olympics get underway.

The network said Riggle will be reporting from Beijing, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall and other locations during the week-long stint.

Throughout the week of Aug. 11 at 11 p.m. ET, Rob Riggle: Chasing the Dragon will follow up on his previous special reports from inside Iraq to interview Chinese business and media leaders, Comedy Central said.

This marks the second time that field producer Glenn Clements has teamed up with Riggle to produce international nightly reports for the show.  In August 2007, they travelled to Iraq for “Operation Silent Thunder.”
