Back in 1990, teenage Judd Apatow had no bigger wish than to appear on HBO's "Young Comedians Special," but when he finally got his chance to audition, things did not go exactly as planned.

You can thank "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart for providing Apatow with his "Worst I Ever Bombed" story, which he shared with "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" this week.

Watch the video above to hear how Stewart's killer set at the audition show not only made Apatow look bad then, but also gave him his second "Worst I Ever Bombed" experience 23 years later.
