Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) was a great sport on The Daily Show Thursday. Comedy Central’s John Oliver twice broke a bottle over the Congressman’s head while trying to determine if he was a real person or not.

Kucinich called a mock LeBron James-style press conference to announce that he would be running to represent Cleveland in Congress.

At one point, the Ohio Democrat even revealed his skills as a ventriloquist.

An original version of this post mistakenly labeled Kucinich a Republican.
