''Daily Show'' host declares that 1997 was one of his best years ever

”This has been one of the best years of my life, next to 10th grade, when my face cleared up. The Daily Show and ‘Five Questions’ have taken the country by storm, or at least the part that gets Comedy Central. I never applied myself in school, and to all the young people out there who don’t apply themselves, I’m proof that there’s a place for you: basic cable. One lowlight: Cindy Crawford interviewed me at the MTV awards, and I was a little buzzed. I don’t think I embarrassed myself, but trying to move the mole on her face and her pushing your hand away is never fun. We learn, we grow, we adjust.”
