Fake news fans, get thyself to North Philly. "Daily Show" correspondent John Hodgman, co-executive producers Adam Lowitt and Rory Albanese for a performance called "Comedy Central Presents 'The Daily Show' Live" at Temple University tomorrow.

Hodgman, Lowitt and Albanese will discuss the innerworkings of the show, while hopefully being as funny as possible. I caught Hodgman last year when he hit Philly for the 215 Festival and was not disappointed.

As Lowitt tweeted, they'll all be wearing Cosby sweaters. Out of respect, of course.

The best part of the whole shebang? It's free. Just show up to the Temple's Student Center (Room 200, N. 13th St., between Montgomery & Cecil B. Moore Ave.). Show starts at 8 p.m., but doors open at 7 p.m. so schedule accordingly for seats.

Hodgman is no stranger to Philly. He's besties with Philly-born comedian Paul F. Tompkins and often tweets about his visits his to South Street's Bob and Barbara's when he's in town.

This is a good week for Philly comedy fans. Aziz Ansari recently announced he'd be filming a special at the Merriam in April.
