John Hodgman on The Daily Show?

I noticed they had John Hodgman (author of The Areas of My Expertise) on as a correspondent last night talking about Alan Greenspan. Is he on The Daily Show now?

This guy:

If not, he's a regular guest. I've seen him a few times for a few in-studio pieces. I think the guy's hilarious, way funnier than some of the newer guys.

I believe he's a new correspondent. I think he's hilarious, easily the best one they've added in a long time. He was on the show as a guest just a short while ago, too. They must have really liked him.

I didn't think the bit he did last night (or the night before) was funny at all. Maybe I'll watch it again since I was doing something else at the time, but I remember thinking that the joke he ended with was really weak.

I think he is funny. He is the first new correspondent that has his own style. All the others seem to just copy the style of Colbert, Helms, Corddry, etc.

His deadpan style is funny.

I agree with you about having his own style, so he could possible grow on me, the way Ed Helms did.

However, right now, not so funny.

I was pretty "meh" about his performance the other night, but when he said to zoom in on the speck in the background of the dust bowl image and it was him in a flying car waving, I lost it.

If he's on semi-regularly now, that's great news. Like all of the correspondents, I think he'll get better (funnier) with time. Some people forget how awkward and unfunny Rob Cordrey was when he first started.

Everyone forgets how awkward the correspondents are at first. Each and every one of them.

Yeah, it's all good. I'll keep an open mind.
