Jon Stewart Returns

It isn’t necessarily what Jon Stewart fans were expecting, but nonetheless they’re rejoicing.

Comedian Jon Stewart will have his own stand-up special for the first time in 21 years.

After 16 years of being the host of The Daily Show the comedian powerhouse will know have free reign to discuss more topics than he could in his programmed show.

HBO announced Stewart’s special two months after they released that they would abandon the animated series they had worked on with Stewart for 18 months.

“I’m really thrilled to be able to return to stand-up on HBO. 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,” Stewart said in his released statement.

Stewart has more than two years left on his contract with HBO which will also allow viewers to see him again.

Stewart is scheduled to host the HBO special “Night of Too Many Stars” in the Fall to raise funds for Autism.
