Jon Stewart doesn't appear much on camera anymore, beyond a few appearances on his friends' shows from time to time. After a 16-year run as host of The Daily Show, Stewart left the spotlight in 2015, tired of the daily grind of outrage-driven humor. Considering the wide swath of history his hosting tenure spanned — from Bush v. Gore to 9/11 to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the Great Recession and countless mass shootings, he had a lot to be angry about.
The anger Stewart brought each night was key to his success in reaching an audience, and critical acclaim followed as well, with The Daily Show earning 23 Primetime Emmy Awards and three Peabody Awards during his run.
And even after a few years away from the studio, he's still angry, but with a purpose.
