Jon Stewart’s Best “Daily Show” Moments
Well, at least the most New York-y
This Thursday, after 16 years behind a Hell’s Kitchen desk, Jon Stewart will cue his last Moment of Zen.
However you lean politically, there’s no denying the man is a Manhattanite through and through. So on the eve of Stewart’s final show, we went in search of the times The Daily Show was at its New York best (many of which involve epic pizza rants).
THE NYC VS. CHICAGO PIZZA RANT
If ever there were a rally cry for the City of New York, this is it.
THE DONALD TRUMP PIZZA RANT
But we can’t neglect the original pizza rant--the one that involves Donald Trump and Sarah Palin.
THE BILL DE BLASIO PIZZA RANT
We told you there were a lot of pie-related clips. And this just proves that no political party is safe.
THE ROBERT DURST REACTION
Nope, not in response to HBO's The Jinx--but to the New York newspapers’ coverage of his 2003 acquittal.
THE MOSQUE CONTROVERSY
Then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg came on the show to air his (strangely hilarious) feelings on religious freedom. And bagel taxes.
THE 2014 U.E.S. SNOWPOCALYPSE
Remember that storm where, for once, Brooklyn was shoveled clean and the Upper East Side still had sludge?
