Jon Stewart News, Pictures, and Videos
Jon Stewart is all smiles at the final taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Thursday (August 6).
The 52-year-old comedian bid farewell alongside special guests and correspondents Steve Carell, Olivia Munn, Stephen Colbert, Kristen Schaal, Aasif Mandvi, John Hodgman, Jessica Williams, Hasan Minhaj, John Oliver, Jordan Klepper, and future host Trevor Noah.
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band were also in attendance to cap the show with a special musical tribute.
“An artist I really admire once said that he thinks of his career as a long conversation with the audience, a dialog. Nothing ends, it’s a pause in the conversation,” Jon expressed during his final moments. “So rather than saying goodbye or goodnight, I’m just going say I’m going to go get a drink. And I’m sure I’ll see you guys before I leave.”

Jon Stewart tips his hat to his fans while leaving the studio following the final taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Thursday evening (August 6) in New York City.
Some of the special guests in attendance at the taping included singer Bruce Springsteen and his longtime guitar player Steven Van Zandt, who has also acted on The Sopranos.
Jon opened up this week to NPR about why he decided to leave the show.
“You can’t just stay in the same place because it feels like you’ve built a nice house there. And that’s really the thing that I struggle with and it is unclear to me,” Jon said. “The minute I say I’m not going to do it anymore, I will miss it like crazy and I will consider that to be a terrible mistake that I’ve just made and I will want to grab it back. … I cannot tell you how fortunate I’ve been in this business to have worked with people like Stephen [Colbert] and John Oliver and Larry Wilmore and the writers and producers that we have at the show and all the opportunities that I have. And I consider it gravy, everything.”
“I can’t believe that you’re leaving before me…I’m issuing a new executive order that Jon Stewart can not leave the show. It’s being challenged in the courts,” the President said on the show. Jon will end his Daily Show run in just a few weeks, while the President remains in office until January 2017.
The interview ended on a lighter note when Jon asked if the President had advice for Presidential candidate Donald Trump, to which he said, “I am sure the Republicans are enjoying Trump’s current dominance.” Jon quipped back, “Anything that makes them look less crazy.”
Jon Stewart gave an amazing speech to cover the Charleston church shooting during one of his final episodes of The Daily Show on Thursday night (June 18).
The 52-year-old comedian didn’t write any jokes for his opening monologue and said he was filled with “just sadness.”
“I didn’t do my job today, because of what happened in South Carolina,” Jon started off saying. “Maybe if I wasn’t nearing the end of the run or this wasn’t such a common occurrence, maybe I could have pulled out of the spiral, but I didn’t. I honestly have nothing other than just sadness.”
“If this had been what we thought was Islamic terrorism…it’s ‘we’ve got to do whatever we can — we’ll torture people! — we’ve got to do whatever we can to keep Americans safe.’ Nine people shot in a church, what about that? ‘Hey, what are you gonna do, crazy is as crazy does.’ That’s the part that I cannot for the life of me wrap my head around,” Jon said to compare the shooting to terrorism.
