The famous American comedian, actor and writer Jon Stewart has been extremely well-known for his fake news show called 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' for years, which runs on the cable television channel comedy central. The popular comedian, Jon Stewart was born in the New York City and later was raised in New Jersey, where he attended the College of William and Mary. He even went through a phase of his life when he did some low profile and odd jobs until when he finally started his career as a stand-up comedian in the year 1986 in the New York City. Since then the star comedian has been working with different television channels and also been involved in a number of other projects. He even did some good piece of writing and published a volume of comic essays, 'Naked Pictures of Famous People 'in the year 1998, and after one year Jon Stewart became a part of the television show called The Daily Show as a host in the year 1999.
