Days after the nation lurches into presidential debate season, political commentators Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly will spar off at GW.
O’Reilly, a Fox News host, will face Comedy Central anchor Stewart at 8 p.m. on Oct. 6.
A “limited number” of student tickets will be available Tuesday at 11 a.m. from the Lisner Auditorium Box Office. They will sell for $25 with a valid GWorld card.
Additional tickets will sell for $75 to $100 through the debate’s website. Students can also pay $4.95 to watch the live-streamed show through the website. Half of the event’s profits will go to charity.
Former Fox and Friends host E.D. Hill will moderate the 90-minute debate.
The TV hosts maintain on-air rivalries, but have occasionally appeared on each others’ shows.
Stewart, a political satirist, was last on campus in March for the Clinton Global Initiative University conference, where he spoke alongside former President Bill Clinton.
