    No standup? Weird... considering he's a standup comic...

    Jon Stewart’s work for the 911 first responders has been tenacious and unequaled.
    He is a hero for many reasons, but this being atop the list.
    I was hoping you’d agree and am grateful that you do.

    Trevor Noah is a great host for The Daily Show, he carries the torch. But he is not Jon Stewart. No one brings it like Jon Stewart. Salute, an absolute true patriot

    I still miss this dude. I don't agree with him on much, honestly quite little nowadays, but we've really lost a legend with his retirement.

    I'm from Europe and we are obviously not as updated about every public figure of the united states as americans. In that case, I just heard about jon stewart, as I saw his speech for dave chapelle regarding the mark twain award he received and thought "that guy is funny!". So I checked, who is Jon stewart and found this list. After a few moments, I already was convinced that he's a great guy. However, after Nr. 2, his incredible thoughtful and emotional speech after the 9/11 attack, my first thought was "why is that not Nr. 1?!". Finally, I just saw the reason why it was not the best moment. Nr. 1 was so powerful and unbelievable that I (as an European guy who visited the US quite a few times, since I really like it and at the same time feel sad about the image damage America, receives due to the puppet player in the white house) wish everyone should look up to Mr Stewart and be a tenth of what he is, because then we could become better!

    Jon was great but by far not the greatest as some hysterical fans tend to say... Anyway, Tucker is a dick. Without an actual dick.

    His rant against Chicago Deep Dish Pizza should've been on this list. A classic moment.

    Even with Stephen Colbert, Hasan Minhaj, John Oliver, and Trevor Noah carrying the torch for Jon Stewart, this list is a reminder of how badly he is missed.

    The first interview with the wanna-be communist kenyan who did his absolute best to destroy America made your list? Is this an unfunny joke or somethin?! You regressive leftist libtards all need to schedule a CT-Scan and let a Dr look at your obviously damaged brains to detect just how severe that brain damage guess: the damage is catastrophic..... #ObamaSUCKSSSS

    Such a great void he left behind when he stepped away from The Daily Show. Every single host in front of a shiny desk on a talk show is trying to be Jon Stewart in this day and age, and are failing miserably. It's like "Look what Trump tweeted. Hahahah", and the whole fucking bunch is doing it. Jon Stewart was the whole reason I watched Comedy Central in the 2000s. At least he is out there doing good things, I just miss his points. He felt like the voice of reason in this hard left vs hard right political climate.

    He is a realist, not right, not left, not dem, not repub, not con, not lib, just being real and talking about what people really want, a good life without hurting everyone else. Trevor noah is doing the same.

    McConnell sprinted in to the senate to vote for the Iraq war, the 2 trillion dollar tax theft & for every corrupt bill for the rich. He will get to it when he gets to it. But most of those first responders voted for these selfish racist republican. Wake up America, these corrupt politician take your tax dollars & lives just to support the military contractors & themselves, the money never gets to the soldier or now first responders.

    John Stewart is a fuckin tool, I respect what he did for the 9/11 first responders but that’s it, he lives a New York elite life insulated from reality, he’s just mad because he knows he’s wrong on most of these issues
