Downtown Boise was full of rubbernecking and double-takes this afternoon, as comedian Aasif Mandvi and a small camera crew wandered around shooting a piece for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

The subject of the piece is the two-headed fish caught in Eastern Idaho in February, and linked to pollution from a Simplot-owned mine.

The camera crew for the shoot was local and have worked for The Daily Show previously, most recently for a piece on former Idaho Sen. and world-class punchline Larry Craig.

The Daily Show shot fragments at various restaurants on Eighth Street and at the Idaho Capitol. The crew also plans to head to Eastern Idaho, home of the fish in question.

Though the on-site producer refused to comment on the record, he told BW that the air date for a piece is usually four to six weeks after it is shot.
