Jon Stewart is just hitting his stride at the age of 38. It's amazing that it has taken this long for people to embrace his sarcastic, sardonic and incisive sense of humor. Of particular note was a regular "gig" on The Larry Sanders Show (1992). Playing himself, Stewart was the oft-timed Guest Host of The Larry Sanders Show. He became as much a part of the show's fabric as some of the regular performers. He has emerged as a bonafide television personality with his ascension to host of The Daily Show (1996)Comedy Central since taking over for 'Craig Kilborn' in 1999.

  • Original major in college was Chemistry.
  • Close friends with Jennifer Beals.
  • His biggest comedic influences were 'Woody Allen' (qv), 'Steve Martin (I)' (qv), 'Lenny Bruce' (qv), and 'George Carlin' (qv).
  • The only musical performers permitted to play on 'The Daily Show' to date have been personal favorites of Stewart's: 'The White Stripes' (qv), 'Tenacious D' (qv), 'They Might Be Giants' (qv), Bad Religion (which he says is one of his favorite bands), Cold Play and, apparently his all-time favorite, 'Tom Waits' (qv).
  • His wife Tracey is a veterinary technician.
  • Was voted the second funniest person in America by Entertainment Weekly in 2004, behind 'Chris Rock (I)' (qv).
  • Wife Tracey gave birth to their first child, a boy, Nathan Thomas Stewart on July 3, 2004.
  • Was scheduled to host _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv) on February 5, 2000 but had to back out at the last minute. He was replaced by 'Alan Cumming' (qv).
