The Daily Show: Jon Stewart
This is a biography documentary about the American political satirist, Jon Stewart, and his satirical news program, The Daily Show which broadcasted on Comedy Central. The Daily Show’s amusing take on politics as well as the news have made Jon an American icon. Stewart’s popularity made him the host of The Oscars and The Grammys along with the chance to humiliate Tucker Carlson on live Television.
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, resulting in his fourteen Emmy Awards.
In the middle of war, illogical reasoning of the government and an progressively up to date national media, Jon surfaced from a less-known, offbeat cable station to turn out to be among the nation’s single voices for the people in a competitive battlefield of 24-hour news along with pandering political figures. Not like many comedian nowadays, Stewart isn’t going to trade in popular hipsterism or narcissism.
