NEW YORK, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- " The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" is heading to Charlotte with 125+ stalwart staffers to cover its fourth Democratic National Convention and broadcast a week of shows.  "The Daily Show's" coverage of the 2012 DNC will be taped at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center and air nightly at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT from Tuesday, September 4 through Friday, September 7.

"We are incredibly excited to spend a week in the beautiful city of Charlotte," said Rory Albanese, Executive Producer, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.'  "And to the good people of North Carolina, for their southern hospitality in hosting 125 smart-aleck New Yorkers, we offer in advance our thanks, but most of all, our apologies.  Honestly, we didn't mean to break that, and we promise we'll pay for it."

ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center , a partnership between the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Children's Theatre of Charlotte, is located at 300 East Seventh St. in Charlotte. Tickets for the tapings will be available only through the show's Web site, www.thedailyshow.com, not through the venue's box office.
