Daily Show staff member commits suicide, production halted at least a day

from Reuters:

'Daily Show' halts production following suicide
Mon Dec 12, 2005 6:23 PM ET


By Andrew Wallenstein

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - An employee of the Comedy Central program "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" has committed suicide, leading the network to suspend production of Monday night's episode of the program, a spokesman confirmed.

Bill Clarey, 25, took his own life over the weekend, according to the network. A former "Daily Show" intern, Clarey also worked as a receptionist at the program's offices in New York.

Comedy Central has sent grief counselors to the "Daily Show" set to help its employees, sources said, who first learned of the suicide upon coming to work Monday. The network was scheduled to shoot a week's worth of new episodes before shutting down for the final two weeks of the year. The network will air a "Daily Show" repeat instead of the regularly scheduled episode.

Didn't think Stewart would be THAT much of a slave driver after the Emmy wins..

So does that mean they have a job opening?


Ovid, I am joining you in hell. But really-- 25 years old, working at The Daily Show? My life should suck that bad.

I thought the same thing. They did a nice moment of zen (a cat fight scene from Dynasty, I believe) and then credits with no music.
