Jon Stewart is just hitting his stride. It's amazing that it has taken this long for people to embrace his sarcastic, sardonic and incisive sense of humor. Of particular note was a regular "gig" on "The Larry Sanders Show" (1992). Playing himself, Stewart was the oft-timed "Guest Host" of "The Larry Sanders Show". He became as much a part of the show's fabric as some of the regular performers. He has emerged as a bonafide television personality with his ascension to host of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" (1996)/Comedy Central since taking over for Craig Kilborn in 1999.
