Behind the Scenes at The Daily Show

Friday, January 8, 2010 - 4:02pm

Jane is no stranger to television interviews. Over her 50 years of work, she has appeared on a variety of of well-known, traditional news programs. But this past November, Jane let her hair down -- so to speak -- to reach a new audience by appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the popular news satire program on Comedy Central.

The interview started out with a round of laughs as Jane greeted Jon in typical chimpanzee fashion. She also spoke about her recent book Hope for Animals and Their World: How Endangered Species are Being Rescued from the Brink. Make sure to visit The Daily Show's website if you missed the interview.  

The two really hit it off and had great chemistry on air! Jane meets Jon Stewart backstage at The Daily Show in New York City.
Yum! Jon Stewart really enjoyed these vegan cookies baked by Shawn Sweeney of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots.
Outside the studio, Jane visited with a few local members of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots who attended the show's taping. To Jane's right is Shawn Sweeney, Roots & Shoots program coordinator for university programs.
