This is just a taste of the comedy Jon Stewart will bring to the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center when he performs Saturday.
After getting his start on MTV as host of The Jon Stewart Show, which ran from 1994-95, Stewart focused on his movie career throughout most of the late 1990’s by taking small roles in Big Daddy, Half Baked and The Faculty.
In 1999, Stewart joined the Comedy Central family as the new anchor of The Daily Show, after Craig Kilborn jumped ship to join CBS. It’s in this environment that Stewart is most effective. He has the chance to take the news and change it into something more appealing for the Comedy Central audience. The show was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program in 2001.
After conquering both the small and silver screens, Stewart set his sights on the literary world with 1999’s Naked Pictures of Famous People. No one was safe from his witty remarks about religion (“The New Judaism”) and celebrities (“Martha Stewart’s Vagina”).
Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $29.75-$49.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
