“Daily Show” Coming to Baja Bean 

As president comes to town, so does Comedy Central.

Are you a hilarious drunk who’s politically tone-deaf ?

Saturday could be your chance to become a star.

A crew from “The Daily Show” is planning to come to Baja Bean Company on Saturday, May 5 to interview patrons about the kickoff of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Obama will be speaking at the Siegel Center at Virginia Commonwealth University Saturday afternoon.

What the show is looking for, surmises Baja Bean owner Jeff Allums, is “the man on the street who doesn’t know anything about what’s going on in the world.” Allums hasn’t been told which correspondent, if any, may show up.

If you want a shot at the screen, you’ll probably have to head to the bar early and skip the president’s speech (which is free and open to the public). A producer told Allums to expect the crew around 6 p.m., when the bar already will be packed to the gills. It’s Cinco de Mayo, after all, the biggest day of the year for Baja Bean (after VCU basketball championship game days). “You almost wish they’d do it on just a regular Saturday,” Allums laments.
