The Daily Show Travels Hundreds of Miles to Mock Mayor Rob Ford

The Daily Show comes to Canada to see City Hall for itself.

The mayor’s scandals have been joke fodder on U.S. late-night comedy shows for weeks now, but Tuesday’s edition of The Daily Show may just have outdone all the others. The difference, in this case, is that the show actually sent a correspondent, Jessica Williams, to Toronto. Her interview with Councillor John Parker (Ward 26, Don Valley West) is legendary.

Words can barely do justice to the rest of the segment; it needs to be watched. It’s embedded above.

UPDATE: November 21, 2013, 12:00 PM The video that was embedded at the top of this post seems to have been removed from YouTube, but you can still watch the segment on The Comedy Network’s website.
