A behind-the-scenes look.

anonymous asked:

Can you link Jon's comedy specials?

Do you mean stand up? As far as I’m aware Jon has only done one stand up special for tv - Jon Stewart Unleavened, for HBO in 1996. You can watch the whole thing here 

 Searching for ‘Jon Stewart stand up’ on youtube will bring quite a bit of other (often bootlegged) stuff up. You can see his entire set from Baltimore in 2013 here for example. And if you add northeastern to that search most of his routine from Northeastern University in 2008 is up in bits.

I’m pretty sure his snl monologue is available free on hulu too.

Hope that helps! Unleavened is great!

As he explained on July 2 before vacation, he is off for two weeks only to come back for a three-week sprint to the finish.  Ever since he announced in February that he was stepping down, many of us have wondered how our dysfunctional political and media culture will operate without the hard-hitting satire he has offered us for over 16 years.  There is little doubt that Stewart has not just played a role as a powerful public intellectual able to critique the media and politicians when we need it most; he has also redefined satire in an era when most media and politics already seem like a farce.

Stewart is stepping aside because he’s exhausted by our petty, dangerous politics. Now we’re really screwed
