Vanity Fair has an excerpt from a recently released book with the oral history of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
My wildest dream for The Daily Show when I started was “This will be fun. Hopefully we’ll do it well.” Success for me would’ve been feeling like I figured it out. That I got to express the things I wanted to. It was never “I want this to be a cultural touchstone … but only for a very small portion of America.” And I was hoping to stay on TV longer than nine months this time.
What a great read. I’ve already added the full book to my Amazon wishlist.
