The show must go on --  even when you’re bleeding.

On Tuesday’s  The Daily Show, Jon Stewart badly cut his hand while taping a skit about his friend, Rep. Anthony Weiner, but ever the pro, the funnyman kept on going anyway.

Stewart injured himself when he broke a glass and gashed his hand while filming a bit that had him mockingly reenacting Weiner’s news conference on Monday in which he admitted to sending lewd photos of himself to six women.

Eventually, the taping was briefly stopped so  Stewart could get medical attention; it  resumed once he was bandaged up.   The accident was left in Tuesday's show.

After college, Stewart and Weiner’s girlfriend were roommates in New York’s Soho neighborhood, and Weiner spent a lot of time there and the two became friends.
