Early Life 

Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz was born on the 28th of November, 1962, in New York. His parents divorced when he was 11 years old, and he did not have much contact with his father.

He attended Lawrence High School in New Jersey. He then went to The College of William & Mary in Virginia and graduated in 1984. 



Stewart moved to New York City in 1986 to pursue a career in comedy. He started out as a stand-up comedian at The Bitter End – a nightclub. 

He found a job as a writer for the television show ‘Caroline’s Comedy Hour’ in 1989. Within a couple of years he began co-hosting Comedy Central’s ‘Short Attention Span Theater’ with Patty Rosborough in 1991. 

In 1999, the host of ‘The Daily Show’, Craig Kilborn left to host another show and the position was offered to Stewart. 

Stewart helped take ‘The Daily Show’—described as a fake news program—to greater heights of fame by focusing it more strongly on politics and national media. 

He teamed up with Stephen Colbert for the ‘Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear’ in October 2010. The rally took place on the National Mall in Washington D.C. and brought in around 215,000 participants. 

As of October 2022, Jon Stewart’s net worth is $120 Million.

Favorite Quotes from Jon Stewart

“People always say, when did you realize you were funny? And I think it’s not that you realize you were funny. It’s that you’re brain works in a certain way. And I don’t think that that’s – I think in some respects it’s uncontrollable, and you can either accept it and deal with it and hone it or you can try to fight it. And I was too weak to fight it.” – Jon Stewart

“Typically, when you’re with your friends, the premises are coming up left and right. But when you’re on stage, you must create the premise. So you have to create the premise, paint the picture and then deliver the punch line.” – Jon Stewart

“In Iraq, the U.S. military’s whack-a-mole approach to killing Saddam Hussein may have finally paid off. The bombs destroyed the area and left behind a 60-foot crater, or as coalition forces prefer to call it: a freedom hole.” – Jon Stewart

“Nobody cares that Mitt Romney is rich. It’s Romney’s inability to understand the institutional advantage that he gains from the government’s tax code largesse, that’s a little offensive to people, especially considering Romney’s view on anyone else who looks to the government for things like, I don’t know, food and medicine.” – Jon Stewart

“If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem.” – Jon Stewart
