The Daily Show Doesn't Get Philly Water Ice

Watch as two Daily Show reps stumble their way around Philly vernacular


With the national spotlight on Philadelphia last week, folks over at Comedy Central's The Daily Show decided to take an inside-look into our city, sending in Daily Show corespondent Roy Wood Jr. to party with the delegates. Wood ended his night at Geno's Steaks, where he couldn't really wrap his head around the concept of Garage, Jason Evanchick's East Passyunk beer bar.

Later in the clip, another Daily Show representative, Ronny Chieng, was sent to investigate the Philly scene. Chieng got a heavy dose of Philly's rough-and-tumble "wooder uyce" culture when he tries to order an "ice water" at the legendary John's Water Ice in Bella Vista.
