Mayor Bill de Blasio is bringing his “dad jokes” and corny humor to “The Daily Show” Monday.

Jon Stewart, the show’s host, will interview the new mayor for the 11 p.m. show.

Two weeks ago, Stewart mocked de Blasio for eating pizza with a fork on Staten Island. The mayor explained that in his ancestral Italy, people commonly eat the dish with utensils.

“You’re supposed to be champion of the middle class!” Stewart said. “Two weeks into your term, and we catch you eating pizza a la Trump?”

“I understand there’s a learning curve to being a mayor, but here’s lesson number one: learn how to eat your city’s signature dish,” Stewart continued.

Still, the host showed some love for de Blasio and his family after the Democratic primary last fall.

“You know, somehow after 12 years of Captain Soda Narc, I think New York City might be ready for a charismatic biracial family with their own signature synchronized dance moves, that appear to have been beamed here from their very own 1970s musical variety special,” Stewart said after showing a clip of the de Blasio family signature move “The Smackdown.”
