Jon Stewart Quotes

“People always say, when did you realize you were funny? And I think it’s not that you realize you were funny. It’s that your brain works in a certain way. And I don’t think that that’s – I think in some respects it’s uncontrollable, and you can either accept it and deal with it and hone it or you can try to fight it. And I was too weak to fight it.”

Jon Stewart

“Typically, when you’re with your friends, the premises are coming up left and right. But when you’re on stage, you must create the premise. So you have to create the premise, paint the picture and then deliver the punchline.”

Jon Stewart

“In Iraq, the U.S. military’s whack-a-mole approach to killing Saddam Hussein may have finally paid off. The bombs destroyed the area and left behind a 60-foot crater, or as coalition forces prefer to call it: a freedom hole.”
