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.”
