Representatives from comedian Jon Stewart's Comedy Central show have been scouting out places to set up camp during the DNC in September.

They looked at the Booth Playhouse in Founders Hall on a site visit a few months ago, according to Tom Gabbard, president and chief executive at Blumenthal Performing Arts. Gabbard said the Stewart crew has looked at other venues as well.

Gabbard said he has also heard from representatives with HBO's Bill Maher and from the Rock the Vote group.
