Jonathan "Jon" Stewart is an American political satirist, writer, producer, director, television host, actor, media critic, and stand-up comedian.

He is the host of The Daily Show, a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central.

Stewart started as a stand-up comedian, but branched into television as host of Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central.

He went on to host his own show on MTV, called The Jon Stewart Show, and then hosted another show on MTV called You Wrote It, You Watch It.

He has also had several film roles as an actor, but has done few cinematic projects since becoming the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central in early 1999.

He is also a writer and co-executive producer of the show.

After Stewart joined, The Daily Show steadily gained popularity and critical acclaim, resulting in his nineteen Emmy Awards.

Stewart has gained acclaim as an acerbic, satirical critic of personality-driven media shows, in particular those of the U.S. media networks such as CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC.

Critics say Stewart benefits from a double standard: he critiques other news shows from the safe, removed position of his "fake news" desk.
