Jon Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz; November 28, 1962) is an American political satirist, writer, television host, actor, media critic and stand-up comedian. He is widely known as host of 'The Daily Show', a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central.
Stewart started as a stand-up comedian, but branched into television as host of 'Short Attention Span Theater' for Comedy Central. He went on to host his own show on MTV, called 'The Jon Stewart Show', and then hosted another show on MTV called 'You Wrote It, You Watch It'. He has also had several film roles as an actor.
Stewart became the host of 'The Daily Show' on Comedy Central in early 1999. He is also a writer and co-executive-producer of the show. After Stewart joined, 'The Daily Show' steadily gained popularity and critical acclaim, which led to his first Emmy Award in 2001.
This Jon Stewart lives in the same TV dimension that is home to 'Davy & Goliath', 'Robot Chicken', 'Moral Orel', and those waifs in the Puffs Plus blipverts.
