Last year, comedian Jon Stewart left The Daily Show on Comedy Central after hosting it for 16 years (it has since been handed off to new host, stand-up comic Trevor Noah.)
Since then, the iconic TV personality has mostly laid low. He’s popped up a little bit on TV from time to time, but, for the most part, he seems to mostly just be straying from the spotlight and just enjoying retirement. But a few nights ago, he returned for one night.
On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Stewart popped up and gave his old friend Colbert a visit (Colbert got his start as a Daily Show correspondent back in the day, before getting his own show The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, then taking over for David Letterman as the new Late Show host last year.)
With the big, crazy election cycle this year, and the fact that the Republican National Convention just wrapped up the other night, it was the perfect time for Stewart to come drop some bombs on us real quick.
The performance is fast, fierce, and funny as fuck. It makes you wish Stewart was still hosting The Daily Show right now, especially during this especially eventful election year..
