What will Comedy Central do?
Comedy Central announced last week that its planned May 31 debut of the show’s third season has been postponed, although it’s not fully clear why. The magazine Entertainment Weekly reported that Chappelle had checked himself into a mental health facility in South Africa.Jon Stewart has bought a new house. With zoological twists.
Production of the series has been stopped with a handful of skits — but no full show — completed, according to the magazine.
Jon Stewart has hooked a $5.8 million Manhattan loft in a deal full of zoological twists, according to The New York Observer.Shabbat Shalom.
The comedian and host of the cable news satire the Daily Show, which airs on Viacom's Comedy Central channel, bought a 6,000-square-foot Tribeca spread in the building that once housed the Wetlands Preserve, a nightclub with an environmental bent. The duplex penthouse has exposures on three sides, a 600-square-foot terrace and a private rooftop. It also was once home to about 1,000 turtles belonging to seller Richard Ogust.
Perhaps looking to maintain the animal theme, Stewart bought his new apartment through a corporate entity named for his cat and dog, the Observer says. Prudential's Douglas Elliman had the listing.
Stewart, 42, has been living in the West Village with his wife and infant son. They won't be the only high-profile occupants of 161 Hudson Street. Last year, Mets catcher Mike Piazza bought his own $4 million-plus penthouse in the building. No word on whether pets were involved.
