Jon Stewart isn’t hosting the Daily Show anymore. No longer will your late night pizza or study breaks be hosted by that wise man playing the fool. No more NYC pizza raves and rants, no more Italian mob impressions, no more stereotypical Jewish grandma impressions, no more “HELLOOOOO” shrilly screeched in his best Queen Elizabeth, and no more self-deprecating one liners.

Thank you Jon. You have (in a weird way) been the most informative truth teller of my generation. True to your craft, and stalwartly human-you have always been a voice that strived to inform AND entertain.
