Jon Stewart    

Talk Show Host, Comedian and Producer

Jon Stewart is considered one of America's top social and comedic voices. Over the past 14 years, Stewart has redefined political satire in American culture from his perch atop the anchor chair on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In fact, surveys have shown that the overwhelming majority of men and women under the age of 35 list The Daily Show as their primary source of television news.

To date, Stewart and The Daily Show have received 50 Emmy Award nominations and won 19. In 2001, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart received the prestigious Peabody Award for its Indecision 2000 campaign coverage. The show received the Peabody Award again in 2005 for Indecision 2004.

In 2005, Comedy Central reached a first-look deal with Stewart's Busboy Productions. The Colbert Report, hosted by Daily Show alum Stephen Colbert, was the first project developed under this agreement. The show debuted on October 17, 2005. Stewart is the co-creator and serves as executive producer of the series.

In October 2010, Stewart co-hosted the Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear with Stephen Colbert, where an estimated 215,000 people descended on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
