Jon Stewart Tests Conan O'Brien's NYC Knowledge in a Citizenship Quiz

From TIME - November 8, 2017

In order to prove his loyalty to New York City, late night host Conan OBrien agreed to take a live citizenship test administered by the citys very own beloved comedian Jon Stewart.

Jon, your quiz does not frighten me, OBrien bantered as Stewarta surprise for the audiencesauntered onstage.

Perhaps its because you wrote it, Stewart responded, before launching into a series of questions on city trivia, all setting up OBrien for some pretty great punchlines. Between discussing the population of Manhattan (1.6 million, but I just want to make it very clear. No one has any idea how many people are in Manhattan. Its a made-up thing) to ripping on the Mets (Where in New York City is the ball dropped every year? Citi Field), the two covered quite a bit of ground.

At one point, Stewart had to pass of the cue card to Conans sidekick Andy Richter, seeming overcome with emotion. Name the very famous New York resident who won the 2016 presidential election, Richter finally asked.

Conans response: Hillary Clinton. That got a big round of applause.
