Jon Stewart’s departure from The Daily Show is huge news in the world of entertainment. Yesterday we discussed him impact on new media and speculated about which of our favorite YouTube stars might make a worthy successor. However before looking forward we should look back at all the comedy that Stewart has managed to pack into his 17 years as host. During that time he’s interviewed (and imitated) Presidents, senator, and foreign heads of state. The #News crew has gathered up some of Jon Stewart’s best moments and Anais Fairweather is standing by to count them down.
I’m sure Jon will slip in a few more epic moments before he steps down later this year, but I know I’ll never forget any of these. What are some of your favorite Jon Stewart moments? Let us know in the comments.
