CLEVELAND - In the midst of a political season filled with candidates that are larger than life, The Daily Show poked a little fun at the GOP event in a way that only they could pull off.
Presented by Comedy Central and "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah," the Convention Sideshow turned the 'circus-esque' political season into a fully interactive social experience with games and activities for all ages, regardless of party affiliation.
Some of the instillation included a whack-a-mole inspired 'Hot Button Issues' game where players could "drop the proverbial (foam) hammer on politics and punditry antics, from gun control to climate change to immigration" and a full-sized replica of The Daily Show desk that guests could snap a picture.
At the end of the installment, guests had an opportunity to enter for a chance to win two tickets to a taping of the live show during the week.
