Another DaVinci Gets It Wrong

(OK, OK, cheap shot.)

A school finds out that it hired the wrong Jon Stewart for a fundraiser next week.

... The DaVinci Academy thought it had made a deal with comedian Jon Stewart, star of "The Daily Show" and host of this year's Academy Awards, to appear next week.

It sent out 500 invitations to businesses and planned for 900 people.

But last week, it learned that it had booked Jon A. Stewart, a former motivational speaker, businessman and part-time professional wrestler from Chicago.

The school only found out about the error because a newspaper reporter called the comedian's publicist last week.

Now, if this were a television show, Stewart would swoop in at the last minute and broadcast "The Daily Show" Live! From! Ogden! Utah! You know, for the children.

C'mon, Jon, you're a stand-up guy, aren't you?
