Miss Him Already: The Best Of The “Jon Voyage” Tributes To Jon Stewart
Jon Stewart bids goodbye to his Daily Show desk on Thursday night in the final episode of the show he has hosted for 16 years. He has truly been one of the most influential comedians and political satirists in the lives of the Millennials who have grown up with him on their TVs, and even their parents who have learned from Jon how to recognize our changing society. His humor, wit and genuine concern for the state of our communities and nation have captured the hearts of celebrities, athletes, comedians, politicians, activists and even companies.
Basically, he changed the game.
Jon is even responsible for bringing to our attention the brilliance of Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Steve Carrell and an astounding list of others. It would have been hard to believe that anyone else could replicate Jon Stewart's impeccably astute blending of politics and late night comedy had he not mentored the likes of Colbert and Oliver to pure greatness as well. Not only has he been a master at what he does but he has helped to craft his successors who will watch over and take care of us in his departure.
It's difficult to find a way to thank him enough. In light of the joy he has brought his fans, guests, coworkers and even sponsors over the years, the country has come together to bid #JonVoyage to our beloved friend. Here's some of the best. Get ready to laugh and cry, just as Jon would want.
Arby's + Jon Forever
The perfect formula.
Can we all get a weekly Skype call, Jon?
SO stupid. :(
Lare-bear with the jokes. Still crying though.
Because of course he's the nicest...
I'm crying. Straight up.
Thank you for everything, Jon. You made a difference in my life and the way I view and care about the world around me. You informed me when I was ignorant and you made me laugh when the world sometimes made me sad. I hope I can be like you when I grow up. #JonVoyage
