Jon Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz on November 28, 1962) is an American liberal comedian, whose hosting of the Oscars in 2008 set the modern record for its smallest number of viewers: it "drew the worst ratings ... of the modern era. Whoever came because of Stewart was more than offset by those who tuned out."[1]

Stewart appeared in several bad movies, including "Big Daddy," "The Faculty," "Half Baked," and "Death To Smoochy." Because his movies almost always do very badly (critically and financially) people say that there is a "Jon Stewart Curse" that he brings to all his movies.

Jon Stewart has described himself as "more of a socialist or an independent than a Democrat."[2] Roger Ailes mentioned that Stewart told him he is an atheist.[3] He is best known as the host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and for his political satire.
