Described by no less than his former Daily Show co-star Stephen Colbert as “the kindest, most thoughtful friend, the fastest mind, the stupidest doofus and most passionate patriot,” Jon Stewart (pictured above with his family) is the 23rd recipient of the prestigious Kennedy Center prize for contributions to American humor. The first ceremony since 2019 features music from Bruce Springsteen and tributes from Daily Show alums including Steve Carell, Ed Helms and John Oliver, who performs a mock eulogy. Stewart’s deadpan response: “I guess I expected more.”
