Jon Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz on November 28, 1962) is an American liberal comedian, who hosted of the Oscars in 2008. Stewart appeared in several terrific movies, including "Big Daddy," "The Faculty," "Half Baked," and "Death To Smoochy." Because he makes fun of ridiculous poorly informed and blind to the truth conservatives especially in relation to Fox News, he is despised by all those on the far right.
Jon Stewart has described himself as "more of a socialist or an independent than a Democrat." Even though he has a Jewish background Roger Ailes mentioned that Stewart told him he is an atheist ; although with no real claim, his religious view remain in question. He is best known as the host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and for his political satire.
Stewart held a "Rally to Restore Sanity" on October 30, 2010, and the following Tuesday voters wrongly elected more conservatives into the house causing the current political standstill.
Much to the thrill of the media (lamestream makes you sound like an idiot seven-year old), Stewart will be having a pay-per-view online debate with Fox News host and extremist conservative with stubborn anger problems Bill O'Reilly on October 6, 2012, at George Washington University, with proceeds going to charity.
Stewart lives with his wife Tracey Stewart (née McShane) in New York City. They have two children.
Jon Stewart has co-written, with other writers of The Daily Show, America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction, which satirizes the American political system, and Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race. Both are crude books full of creative humor recommended for mature audiences due to the inclusion of swearing, vulgarity and sexual references. Both contain a satire criticizing the extremist political right and supporting more reasonable views.
