    Jon Stewart - Mark Twain Prize 2022

    I miss him 4 nights a week. Nobody has ever done it better, and nobody in recent memory has launched as many careers.

    His work for the 9/11 first responders is the closest thing to a modern Mr. Smith Goes to Washington as Iíve seen.

    I was just thinking about this a month ago, after seeing Jason Jones in TV's "The Flight Attendant" and Jessica Williams in the most recent Fantastic Beasts movie.

    For a late night person, Jon Stewart's Comedy Tree is second only to that of Lorne Michaels. I'm pretty sure Stephen Colbert was a correspondent on "The Daily Show" when Craig Kilborn hosted, but he didn't become what he is today until Jon Stewart arrived.

    Current Late Night Hosts/Anchors

    Samantha Bee
    Michael Che
    Stephen Colbert
    John Oliver

    Other Hosts/Anchors

    Dave Attell
    Wyatt Cenac
    Demetri Martin
    Hasan Minhaj
    Mo Rocca
    Paul F. Tompkins
    Brian Unger
    Larry Wilmore

    Authors

    John Hodgman

    Movie, TV, and Stage Actors

    Lewis Black
    Steve Carell
    Nate Corddry
    Rob Corddry
    Josh Gad
    Rachael Harris
    Ed Helms
    Jason Jones
    Beth Littleford
    Aasif Mandvi
    Olivia Munn
    Rob Riggle
    Matt Walsh
    Jessica Williams

    These are just the on-air people. Writers on the show have branched out to create, produce, run, and/or write for a number of shows like Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Portlandia.

    You also have people like Jordan Klepper, who started under Stewart but still work under Trevor Noah, and Noah himself, who overlapped with Stewart for maybe a year before taking over.

    You are correct, Colbert mentioned that in the link/show. I think my favorite recurring thing ever on The Daily Show was Even Step(v)hen.
