Jon Stewart recently cut his wrist while performing a "Daily Show" skit mocking Rep. Anthony Weiner.

The series host had parodied the congressman's public apology for posting a sexually-explicit photograph of himself online. The talk show host suffered the mishap while trying to pour a blended strawberry drink he had made into a margarita glass.

"That's not good," Stewart said, examining his wound and sipping the beverage. "I'm probably going to need to go to the hospital."

He received medical attention minutes later and then continued the skit until "Daily Show" correspondent John Oliver took over for him. Stewart later required six stitches, a spokesperson for the Comedy Central show told OnTheRedCarpet.com.

Check out the video of Jon Stewart's skit and accident below.
