television programs. In 1999, he became anchorman of The Daily Show (later renamed The Daily

Popular television host Jon Stewart was born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz on November 28, 1962, in
New York City. (He later legally changed his last name to Stewart.) His family later relocated to
Lawrenceville, New Jersey, where Stewart spent most of his youth. In 1984, Stewart graduated from
the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he studied psychology and played on
the men’s soccer team. After bouncing among a number of jobs, Stewart moved to New York City in
1986 to break into the comedy club circuit. Three years later, he was hosting Comedy Central’s Short
Attention Span Theater. In 1993, he launched MTV’s first talk show, The Jon Stewart Show.
Throughout the 1990s, Stewart appeared on numerous television programs, including a regular role as
himself on HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show. Other credits include the HBO comedy special Jon
Stewart: Unleavened; guest host of The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder on CBS; and guest host of
HBO’s Mr. Show with Bob & David. In January 1999, Stewart took over as anchorman for Comedy
Central’s The Daily Show (later renamed The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), a popular late-night show
that dubs itself “the most trusted name in fake news.” With fast-paced dialog and sardonic wit,
Stewart, who is also the show’s co-executive producer, has become the most outspoken critic of
Washington politics and the established news media.
Due to the success of The Daily Show, which has run for nearly 20 seasons, Stewart has become an
in-demand host. He has hosted numerous award shows, including the Grammy Awards in 2001 and
2002, and the Academy Awards in 2006 and 2008. Stewart is also a film and TV actor. His film career
has been mixed, from the comedy Half Baked (1998) to the box-office bomb Death to Smoochy (2002)
with Robin Williams and Edward Norton, to the successful Adam Sandler vehicle Big Daddy (1999).
He also had roles in the romantic drama Playing by Heart and the horror-comedy The Faculty, which
were both released in 1998. In recent years, Stewart has lent his voice to several animated films,
including Doogal (2006). Also a talented writer, Stewart’s work has been published in several
magazines, including The New Yorker and Esquire, and he has authored two books. His first effort
was Naked Pictures of Famous People (1998), a collection of satirical essays. Written with Ben Karlin
and David Javerbaum, his 2004 book, America (the book): A Citizen’s Guide to Democracy Inaction,
was a best-seller. In 2013, Stewart announced that he was taking a break from The Daily Show to take
on a new challenge. He is planning to work on his directorial debut with the film Rosewater. Stewart
also wrote the screenplay, which is adapted from the 2011 nonfiction work Then They Came for Me: A
Family’s Story of Love, Captivity and Survival by Maziar Bahari and Aimee Molloy.
In an interview with The New York Times, Stewart explained why he took on this dramatic project.
“One of the reasons we are in this business is to challenge ourselves,” he said. “And I really
connected to Maziar’s story. It’s a personal story but one with universal appeal about what it means to
