Jon Stewart Did Stand-up for the First Time in Years

Before he destroyed, eviscerated, and owned Fox News, Jon Stewart was a stand-up comedian. Now, with only days remaining in his Daily Show tenure, Stewart returned to the stage for the first time in a decade, dropping in unannounced at the Comedy Cellar to do a ten-minute set. Intimidatingly enough, he had to follow Louis C.K., who was there doing the same thing. Stewart was urged on by former Daily Show (and current Nightly Show) producer Rory Albanese, who Instagrammed the whole thing. There’s no video from the appearance yet, so it’s unclear what he joked about, but we’re guessing he probably stayed away from Herman Cain.
