Jordan Klepper, Host of 'The Opposition'

Klepper got his big break as a comedian when he was hired to be a correspondent on 'The Daily Show' with Jon Stewart. Now he hosts his own show on Comedy Central called 'The Opposition.' "He creates his own reality," Klepper says of his character, who's modeled after far-right conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones. "He sees the two dots and he fills the spaces with the things that make him feel more comfortable." Also, Maureen Corrigan reviews the debut novel 'Self-Portrait with Boy' by Rachel Lyon.
