Jon Stewart Is Officially Coming Back To TV


Jon Stewart is officially coming back to television, y’all! Not as the host of a late night talk show, unfortunately, but as part of his development deal with HBO, he did officially announce that he is releasing two stand-up specials with the network—and that, my friends, is not nothing in this time of constant political mayhem.

The specials will be the first Stewart stand-up specials since 1996’s Jon Stewart: Unleavened—his first and only filmed stand-up special so far (can you believe it?). 

“We’re excited to bring Jon to the network with this pair of specials. We’ve all missed his uniquely thoughtful brand of humor,” said HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys, in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

 “I’m really thrilled to be able to return to stand-up on HBO,” said Stewart himself. “They’ve always set the standard for great stand-up specials. Plus, I can finally use up the last of the Saddam Hussein jokes left over from my first special.”

Look, I’d love to see Stewart back behind a desk, but standing on stage in front of a microphone is honestly the next best thing. And besides—hopefully this means he starts going on tour to work out his material.
