The Sauce is delighted to announce that the soon-to-be former host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, will be joining our writing staff at the end of his tenure on the program.
Stewart, who has some experience within the field of satire, has been accepted into the hallowed ranks of this prestigious publication after a rigorous interviewing process, spanning several years.
We here at The Sauce are always looking to develop fresh comedic talent, and we believe that Stewart has the potential to go far in this industry. He may even have his own online satirical website one day.
However, Stewart understands that there is a long way to go until then.
“Firstly, I am incredibly grateful that The Sauce is giving me this opportunity. Despite being the leading voice in satire for the better part of two decades, launching the careers of many hugely successful comedians, and becoming the most trusted voice in the media, I feel like I have a lot to learn from The Sauce”, Stewart said, in a press release we prepared for him.
“I am hopeful that my 17 years as the host of The Daily Show, and my substantial comedic career prior to that, can really help me make a meaningful contribution to making fun of Tony Abbott”.
The Sauce is optimistic that this will go much better than the last time we hired a former Daily Show host, as the terrifying month that Craig Kilborn was the Assistant Editor still lives on vividly in our minds.
