Jon Stewart was born in New Jersey, in 1962. By the time he turned 27 he was hosting his first show, Short Attention Span Theatre aired on Comedy Central. In four years John proved he’s worth his personal program and launched Jon Stewart Show on MTV channel. By the late 1990s he was hosting The Daily Show, the predecessor of his current program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. These series, which has already been running for more than 20 seasons, brought Jon a national recognition and turned him into one of the most popular hosts in America. In addition to this Stewart has established himself as a successful actor, appearing on the comedies Big Daddy, Half Baked and variety of other TV productions. According to the latest estimates, Jon Stewart net worth already amounts to $16 million and it does not look like it’s going to stop growing any time soon.
After graduating from high school in Lawrence, the future millionaire has chosen to study psychology at the College of William and Mary, where he joined the soccer team. With diploma already in his hands he bounced among variety of different jobs, neither of which has significantly increased Jon Stewart net worth. In 1986 he finally decided to make some use of his talent to make random people burst into laugh and moved to the Big Apple to pursue a career in comedy. It only took three years for him to land a position of host on Comedy Central’s show Short Attention Span Theatre. Jon Stewart net worth continued to intensify as he started hosting a talk-show on MTV.

In 1999 Stewart started hosting the “fake news” titled The Daily Show. Its equivalent, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, is running until this day. The content of this program is pretty easy to digest: it starts with a critical, satirical overview of the latest political events, which is often followed by some “special reportage”, and ends with Stewart interviewing some guest. During the last few years alone the show was visited by some of the most prominent movie stars, politicians and other public persons. For example, Stewart has recently talked to the former President Bill Clinton, as well as with the incumbent Barak Obama and his wife Michelle. It is exactly the unceasing popularity of this show that boosted Jon Stewart net worth to its current heights.
