Jon Stewart Left Speechless By 16-Year Old Nobel Peace Prize Candidate!

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsInspiration

Malala Yousafzai is an extremely active advocate for women's education, she's survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban, she was a Nobel Peace Prize candidate…

…and she's only 16 years old!

Now, she can add "Interviewed with Jon Stewart" to her impressive resume, although Jon made it very clear that if anyone was impressed during the interview, it was him.

When asked on The Daily Show how she reacted upon learning that the Taliban wanted her dead, Malala gave a response that stunned the host:

"I started thinking about that, and I used to think that the Talib would come, and he would just kill me. But then I said, 'If he comes, what would you do Malala?' then I would reply to myself, 'Malala, just take a shoe and hit him.' But then I said, 'If you hit a Talib with your shoe, then there would be no difference between you and the Talib. You must not treat others with cruelty and that much harshly, you must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education.' Then I said I will tell him how important education is and that 'I even want education for your children as well.' And I will tell him, 'That's what I want to tell you, now do what you want.'"

It's no surprise that after this response, Jon totally wanted to adopt her! If that doesn't work out, we totally call next!

We're so proud of you, Malala! Keep up on being the change you wish to see in the world!

Shailene Woodley Talks About The Spectacular Now, Divergent, and R2D2 On The Daily Show!

Shailene Woodley was spectacular last night on The Daily Show talking about The Spectacular Now!

Interviewed by the properly HIGHlarious John Oliver, Shailene talked about how tough "coming of age" can be for some teens. She explained

"I went to a public American High School, and I think it could've been awful if I didn't have my choir buddies."

Aw, everyone needs to gleek out a little bit! And geek out too!

When asked which Star Wars character gave her the creepiest hug at Comic-Con, Shailene admitted to actually being a huge fan of the franchise:

Bassem Youssef has been called the Jon Stewart of the Arab world, but nothing beats the real thing! Except maybe those guys in the suits!

Jon even tries to work the crowd a bit, even though Arabic isn't his first language! Or probably his second…

Luckily for him and us, the interview is in English! Mostly!

Hurricane Sandy Forces MORE Cancellations

Jimmy Kimmel

Bummer! If there's ever a time we need to laugh, it's times like these!

Unfortunately, Jimmy Kimmel Live in Brooklyn is cancelled for tonight due to the threat of Hurricane Sandy. ABC released a statement that said:

"We are hopeful to be back on the air tomorrow night with Howard Stern, Tracy Morgan and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings."

But Jimmy Kimmel isn't the only one being better safe than sorry. The NYC-based Daily Show and Colbert Report have also cancelled their tapings and will be airing reruns.

Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman will tape their shows without a studio audience.

The storm is hitting the big screen too!

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsPolitikHarry PotterBookz

J.K. Rowling is a welfare success story.

She lived on government assistance for years as a single mother before Harry Potter made her a billionaire and she seems pretty damn grateful for those benefits.

In fact, the successful author revealed (above) she pays "a lot of tax" on her fortune to the English government, but doesn't mind! She actually feels indebted to the system that provided for her and her child when nobody else would and told Jon Stewart:

Stephen Colbert Promises Jon Stewart Will Beat Eat O'Reilly During Debate

Stephen Colbert co-hosted Good Morning America on Tuesday, but made sure to promote his newest book, America Again: Re-Becoming The Greatness We Never Weren’t, in the process.

He took a break from the anchor desk to sit down for an interview (above) with George Stephanopoulos and discussed a variety of issues like the upcoming presidential debate, New York's un-American soda ban, and fixing the economy.

Perhaps the most important topic was Jon Stewart's debate against Bill O'Reilly this Saturday.

It was a small portion of the HIGHlarious interview, but Colbert made it pretty clear who he favored when he said:
