Jon Stewart is returning to standup. The former Daily Show host is set to headline two comedy specials on HBO, Stewart’s first in over 20 years. The news was announced at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday afternoon.
Additionally, this fall Stewart will host the latest “Night of Too Many Stars” all-star benefit for NEXT For Autism to be presented live from The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on Nov. 18.
The second special will feature stand-up performances, sketches and short films. The comedy event was created by comedy writer and performer Robert Smigel to support autism schools, programs and services.
