A bittersweet farewell, tonight, on Comedy Central
If nothing else, Jon Stewart has been a breath of fresh air over the past 16 years as the host of Comedy Central’s political parody nightly, The Daily Show. “Breath of fresh air” does little justice to the scope of Stewart’s commentary, and the audacity with which he approached his job, whether he was shooting down Fox News’ ridiculous narration of the calamity in Baltimore, or Mike Huckabee‘s short-sighted descriptions of Jay Z and Beyonce‘s relationship, but that’s exactly what he was. Night in, and night out.
Tonight is his last night, and before Trevor Noah–for whom the comedy world has high hopes–takes over the weighty reigns in September, let’s re-visit one of Stewart’s finest moments: a prolific evisceration of a particularly conservative news network’s coverage following Michael Brown‘s shooting in Ferguson. Whether you agree with Stewart’s point of view or not, the below clip serves as a microcosm of what Stewart stood for during his tenure. Deliver what he believe to be the truth, whether you like it or not.
Jon Stewart to be replaced by young, 31-year old comedian
Jon Stewart has certainly left his mark in both the entertainment world and the political realm during his dominant tenure as host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, and his departure left many wondering who the network would find to succeed one of the great political satire figures of the 21st century.
The search is over. Enter Trevor Noah.
Noah, a 31-year old biracial comedian from South Africa will take the reigns and attempt to continue to lead The Daily Show on it’s path to greatness once Stewart officially steps down, a timetable for which has yet to be set, according to Comedy Central.
“We talked to women. We talked to men. We found in Trevor the best person for the job,” says Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless, “You don’t hope to find the next Jon Stewart — there is no next Jon Stewart. So, our goal was to find someone who brings something really exciting and new and different.”
Trevor Noah briefly commented on the news from Dubai, where he’s currently in the midst of a comedy tour.
“You don’t believe it for the first few hours. You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol.”
