Amy Schumer, Louis C.K. and Denis Leary Are Jon Stewart’s Final ‘Daily Show’ Guests
Now that President Obama has come and gone, Jon Stewart’s final round of Daily Show outings will bring out a few more big guns to help send him off. Among the sure to be extensive list, we already have top comedians (and near successors) Amy Schumer, Louis C.K. and even Denis Leary booking slots on Jon Stewart’s final run.
Schumer, Leary and C.K. will guest on August 3, 4 and 5 respectively, as confirmed by Stewart himself in a recent video. Mum’s the word on The Daily Show’s August 6 farewell to its longtime host, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see any of the above trio popping up once more, while Stephen Colbert is also rumored to put in an appearance on the 50-minute goodbye.
Current Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll star Leary tweeted out news of his final appearance near of a month ago, while Stewart said of the guest spot “My favorite guests are my friends: Leary, Louis C.K., Colin Quinn. I get to not work, fuck around with them for five minutes.”
We’ll likely hear more on Stewart’s actual August 6 goodbye in the coming days, but do the likes of Amy Schumer, Louis C.K. and Denis Leary look to send off the revered host in style?
