Rob Riggle, a Daily Show correspondent, has actual combat experience as a major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and was in Iraq for five days last week with a USO sketch comedy tour known as "Operation Feel the Heat." Riggle, who was armed with small, hand-held cameras, also brought back video footage that will be used for the "Daily Show With Jon Stewart" about the troops and their lives in Iraq.

Implications - Many times, The Daily Show has used a greenscreen to simulate their correspondents in the middle east, but this is the first time that they have actually gone to Iraq. Along with Riggle, Clements and Bleyer visited the Balad Air Force Base where they entertained the troops in 120-degree heat.
