Jon Stewart Returns to The Daily Show with a Call to Action, Blasts Congress

Originally posted 12/08/2015 10:45AM

Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show, – but not necessarily for the reason you'd suspect.

The 53-year-old paid a visit to his old Comedy Central stomping ground on Monday to bring attention to an issue he said he cares about very deeply.

Donning a gray T-shirt and his ever-growing scruffy beard, Stewart blasted Congress for not automatically renewing the Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act, a now-expired bill providing healthcare to first responders who worked at the site of the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11 attacks.

"I want to get some attention paid to it, but I was realizing that I don't have a show and nobody gives a s--- anymore," he told host Trevor Noah.

Trevor Noah on Growing Up an Outsider and Why Donald Trump's Presidential Campaign Makes Him Happy

Originally posted 09/28/2015 03:35PM

As Trevor Noah prepares to take over Jon Stewart's seat as a the new host of The Daily Show on Monday night, he tells PEOPLE he's always known he enjoyed making people laugh.

"I've always loved it. Because I grew up as an outsider, I always knew that that's the one thing that bridged the gap," Noah says. "If you laugh with somebody, then you know you share something. Even if you look at a person and go, 'I'm totally different' – you can laugh together. You realize you share way more than you did."

The comedian, who hails from South Africa, says he always relied on comedy to find his way in the world – and, eventually, his home on Comedy Central.

"It was very organic. The way [Jon and I] met, the way we started working together, we found common ground," Noah said of Stewart who departed the show in August after more than 16 years. "Here's a guy who grew up in Jersey on the other side of the world. Here's a kid who grew in Soweto, and yet we see eye to eye on many issues."
