Conservative television personality Bill O'Reilly and "Daily Show" anchor Jon Stewart announced plans to debate each other in a 90-minute event called "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium" on October 6th.
The debate, to be streamed online for a fee of $4.95, will take place at the Lisner Auditorium at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. If you just have to see the event live, tickets go on sale Tuesday at 11am at www.lisner.org. Half of the net profits will go to charity.
As longtime frenemies on separate sides of the political spectrum, Stewart and O'Reilly are sure to put on a good show.
"I'm excited to debate Mr. O'Reilly," said Stewart in a statement. "I believe this will be a very enjoyable night for fans of our programs, political junkies, partisans and people who just enjoy yelling."
"I had no idea my agent signed me up for this," O'Reilly said. "How can I get out of it?"
