JON STEWART CONFIRMS NAMES OF GUESTS STARS FOR THE DAILY SHOW FINALE
During a segment called “Jon Stewart’s Askhole” on last Tuesday’s, July 28, episode, the host revealed that comedians C.K. and Leary are two of his favorite guests stars because they’re all great friends, so he doesn’t have to do much work. “My favorite guests are my friends,” Stewart replied to correspondents Jordan Klepper and Hasan Minhaj who asked questions sent in by fans on Twitter. “[Denis] Leary, Louis C.K., Colin Quinn. I get to not work, f— around with them for five minutes.”
Earlier this month Leary tweeted about his appearance on Stewart’s finale show.
