Jon Stewart Returns to Stand-Up Alongside Louis C.K. at the Comedy Cellar

With retirement looming for the ”Daily Show“ host of 16 years, perhaps stand-up is Stewart’s next move

“Daily Show” host Jon Stewart may have figured out his post-retirement plans. The comedian took the stage at the Comedy Cellar in New York’s West Village for an impromptu stand-up set on Wednesday evening.

Stewart ditched his traditional talk show suits for a more casual ensemble on his night out with former “Daily Show” executive producer Rory Albanese. Albanese, who now leads operations at “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore,” posted a picture on Instagram of Stewart during his 10-minute set.

Albanese captioned the picture: “The Cellar is where it all began for Jon. This was an awesome moment.”

While Stewart was leaving the stage, he reportedly said “I could do this again.” Perhaps he just figured out what he wants to do after retiring from the “Daily Show” on Aug. 6, where he enjoyed a 16-year run.

But Stewart hadn’t been the only surprise guest at the Comedy Cellar that night. Louis C.K. had also performed a set shortly before Stewart, and the two were seen chatting together after the show.
