Summary, etc.:
Jon Stewart has one primary responsibility in his line of work: to make people laugh. In the process of making fun of politicians, celebrities, media outlets, and others in the news, he has become the go-to news source for the 18 to 34 demographic in the United States.Stewart, born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz, is certainly not the first person on late night television to make a name for himself at the expense of others. However, he is almost certainly the first late-night comedian to become such an important source for news and current events, not just for the politically apathetic, but for the politically involved.Stewart had a fairly typical if unremarkable beginning to his career by spending some time in the comedy club circuit in New York City after college. Following that, he landed himself a couple of MTV shows in the early 1990s, most notably The Jon Stewart Show.
