Like it or not, the end of Jon Stewart hosting The Daily Show is nigh. In last night’s episode, former correspondent John Hodgman made an appearance and introduced the first, of I’m sure many, touching tributes to the show’s host.
Hodgman reminded us just why we cherish Stewart, who’s been hosting the show since 1999, so damn much. In some of the country’s darkest moments he’s been able to bring clarity and a touch of humor to a suffering or confused nation. Watch this tribute that Hodgman introduces as dedicated to Stewart’s erudition and skills as an “elegant orator.” There are no words. It’s truly something else.
