Backstage at the Daily Show
You are here
SECRETARY STEVEN CHU: I’m in the famous green room of the Jon Stewart show. If you look around, I have all these games: Monopoly, a Rubik’s Cube, Pictureka!
Now if – this is to amuse myself, but in actual fact, the most famous part of this room is this. There’s enough chocolate here to put you on a high that – (chuckles) – will really get you going.
This is my wife, Jean.
JEAN CHU: (Chuckles.) I’m – (chuckles) – edit this out!
(Begin recorded segment.)
STAFF: We do a quick peek from here. You get a bit of sense of it.
SEC. CHU: OK. So where do I sit?
STAFF: You’re going to be sitting to his – see Jon – that’s Jon’s chair, right here.
SEC. CHU: Right.
STAFF: And your chair’s going to be just to the right of that, to the desk. You know, you’ll be at the side of the desk to the right.
SEC. CHU: Right. On the other side.
(End recorded segment.)
SEC. CHU: So I’m looking around here, and I – of course I’m – the hospitality here has been great.
But as secretary of energy, I have to comment. If I look at these light bulbs here and there and there, golly, all incandescents! But maybe we’ll see if we can fix Jon Stewart with compact fluorescents. (Chuckles.)
