A school thought they had a deal with Jon Stewart (host of the Daily Show and this year’s Oscars) to host their annual fundraiser.
The school sent out invitations and sold tickets, but then, according to Yahoo News, they discovered that they had actually booked a motivational speaker and former professional wrestler also named “Jon Stewart.”
After discovering the mistake, several area theater groups offered to help out by performing. The school also agreed to notify ticket-holders of the problem and to offer refunds.
