Jon Stewart returns to TV in HBO special

Director and former host of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is making his way back into your living room.

According to Variety, Stewart’s stand-up special will air on HBO, marking his first stand-up special in over 20 years.

Stewart told Variety that he’s excited to bring more jokes to the table that he hasn’t used before.

“I’m really thrilled to be able to return to stand-up on HBO. They’ve always set the standard for great stand-up specials. Plus, I can finally use up the last of the Saddam Hussein jokes left over from my first special.”

The last stand-up special Stewart hosted was in 1996, Jon Stewart: Unleavened.

There has yet to be a date set for Stewart’s latest special.
