Jon Stewart is returning to HBO!
The 54-year-old former Daily Show host announced at the TCA summer press tour on Wednesday (July 26) that he will be returning to stand up comedy for his first stand up show in over 20 years.
“I’m really thrilled to be able to return to stand-up on HBO,” Jon said. ”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.”
Jon’s last stand up special “Jon Stewart: Unleavened” aired on HBO back in 1996.
It was also announced that Jon will be hosting the “Night of Too Many Stars” benefit for the NEXT For Autism organization in November alongside a star-studded group, which will be announced later.
