'Daily Show' Video Clip

Daily Show correspondent Rob Riggle recently went on a reporting trip to Iraq.

It is the first time the Comedy Central show has actually sent a correspondent to Iraq. Usually when you are watching the Daily Show, and Jon Stewart refers to having a reporter in Iraq, it is just someone standing in front of a cheesy background.

But Riggle really made the journey and will give a series of reports from Iraq on this week's show.

In addition to his Daily Show gig, Riggle is a major in the Marine Corps reserves. He went to the combat zone to perform for the troops on a USO tour. Now, Riggle talks with Madeleine Brand.
