Jon Stewart on His Journey from Comedian to Activist, the Legacy of ‘the Daily Show,’ and the State of the Modern Media Landscape
Voice of a generation, Jon Stewart joins Talib Kweli at the Blue Note Jazz Club to talk about his journey from stand-up comedian to activist (and back to stand-up comedian). He reflects on the legacy of The Daily Show, the modern media landscape, and his new show The Problem With Jon Stewart.
Stewart also reflects on the passing of the Daily Show torch to Trevor Noah, and shares how he balances his passion for standup, making movies, and breaking down the news. Stewart also gives us insight into the struggles he faced helping to pass the Pact Act.
For old fans of The Daily Show and new fans of The Problem with Jon Stewart—as well as anyone who enjoys the art of great satire—this is a must-listen.
