Longtime Monmouth County resident Jon Stewart will participate in an interview and question-and-answer session at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, June 17 at 8 p.m.
The venue is currently undergoing a $26 million expansion, and proceeds will benefit its capital campaign project. Tickets will go on sale June 7 at noon, and will be priced from $75 to $250, with a limit of four tickets per household. Visit theBASIE.org.
“I’m happy to appear at the Basie for a great cause — the Count Basie,” said Stewart, in a press release. “The expansion going on at the center is going to keep Monmouth County the center of ‘Jersey’s premier arts communities.’ ”
The former “Daily Show” host lives in Red Bank and owns a farm in Middletown.
