Media Teen Bantered with Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart in 2017
Media teen Will Rubin got more than he bargained for when he invited late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel to his bar mitzvah.
He got both Kimmel and former Daily Show star Jon Stewart, plus a video interview on national television, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report by Rob Tornoe.
Rubin invited the popular television host as part of his Jimmy Kimmel Live!-themed bar mitzvah ceremony.
“I want your job one day,” he told Kimmel, who responded, “I don’t know if that was an invitation or a threat.”
Kimmel didn’t attend the ceremony, noting there was “no way in hell I’m going to Media, Pennsylvania.”
He did send an ice sculpture of his sidekick Guillermo’s head and a video message.
Stewart, who is Jewish, crashed the Kimmel segment to campaign for a greater spot in the Media teen’s heart.
“You probably had your choice of idolizing any talk show host, and you could have gone with a Jew, is what I’m saying,” Stewart said. “Don’t be fooled by (Kimmel’s) learned-looking beard and his puffy, sad eyes. He’s not rabbinical; he’s just unhealthy.”
