Staff pick: Jon Stewart at the Palace Theatre
Unless you love Fox News, Jon Stewart is probably your go-to TV news guy. Not because Stewart is some kind of Walter Cronkite-like figure, but because "The Daily Show" is really damn funny.
With an arsenal of material, Stewart is sure to have plenty of scathing rips on the perpetual ridiculousness of politics and the media when he stops in Columbus this week on his short stand-up tour. In fact, the tour is so short that the only stops are Columbus and Cleveland. Yeah, you'll want to be there.
7:30 p.m. Friday
