Daily Show's first musical guest: White Stripes

Jon Stewart's Comedy Central program branches out

The blue vs. red political quips of “The Daily Show” is getting a peppermint infusion.

The White Stripes will be the first band to perform on the Comedy Central show. On Dec. 1, Jack and Meg White — the red and white clad duo that make up the Stripes — will both perform and chat with host Jon Stewart.

“We’ve never had a musical performance on the show before — not because we haven’t wanted one — but because we were holding out for a reunited Spandau Ballet,” Stewart joked in a statement. “This will have to suffice.”

The White Stripes recently completed a tour of their new album, “Get Behind Me Satan.”

“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. ET.
