After an impressive 16-season run, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will air its final show this coming Thursday. While we’ve certainly seen no shortage of retrospectives highlighting all of the laughs and crazy show moments that took place over the last decade and a half, one of the more intriguing aspects of The Daily Show, I think, is that the program was an absolute star making machine.
Look backing, the sheer number of top notch comedians, media personalities, and actors who got their start on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is impressive. Sure, most people might recognize Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell as two stars who honed their comedy chops on the show, but the program’s all-star lineup of former cast members runs much deeper.
