The Comedy Central companion shows are two of the 45 teams from the media scene competing in the annual NYFEST industry soccer tournament on Saturday.
The staffs of The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight will be among the teams slated to face off at a celebrity soccer tournament this weekend as part of NYFEST.

As I was compiling articles and videos for this piece, it was not about what to put in, but deciding what to leave out. I would get a link to an article and as I was reading it, on the sidebar was another article about Stephen or about the Late Show or Suey Park and even now Bill O’Reilly is in the mix, and even sometimes when I clicked on that one, there was yet another one on the side.
