Will Rubin, a 13-year-old from Media, Pennsylvania, chose to make his event a Jimmy Kimmel-affair, with a talk show set, a Kimmel-style opening credits sequence and an ice sculpture of Guillermo.
As Will and Kimmel yukked it up, the former "Daily Show" host appeared, wearing his off-duty ensemble of jeans, faded T-shirt and stubble, and confronted Will about throwing a bar mitzvah inspired by a gentile.
But something odd happened as Kimmel chatted with Will on Thursday night: an interloper took to the stage, wearing a T-shirt and jeans.
It was all very charming, but at least one person was mystified by Will's idolization of Kimmel: Jon Stewart. But he evidently happened to be on the West coast, where Kimmel films his show, on Thursday-and he never brought up the Trump administration during his appearance.More news: Genworth Financial (GNW) Receives Coverage Optimism Rating of 0.29
You can catch "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global. "And I am a Jew", Stewart explained to the young Pennsylvania kid.
"You probably had your choice of idolizing any talk show host and you could've gone with a Jew, that's all I'm saying", Stewart said.
After asking to speak with Rubin, Stewart implored Kimmel to "sheket b'vakasha" (which translates to "be quiet please" in Hebrew). Stewart asked Rubin if he understood his joke and added, "You know who didn't get that joke?" Did you get that?
On Thursday, the precocious teenager from Media, Penn., returned the favor by appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" via satellite. He reminds him not to be fooled by Kimmel's beard and those puffy, sad eyes, because "he's not Rabbinical - "he's just unhealthy". He's not. Will, I don't know how I put this. How do kids say it?
