The Daily Show's Jon Stewart bid his audience a very emotional farewell on his final show this Thursday and treated them to one last "moment of zen," courtesy of his friend Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
Fellow New Jersey resident Springsteen provided Stewart's last "moment of Zen." He performed "Land of Hope and Dreams" at the host's request, and then "Born to Run," with guests clustered around like it was the band at a high school dance.
Springsteen inspired Stewart to follow his own career dreams, and also Thursday's farewell. Stewart said he admired how the songwriter described his career as an ongoing conversation with his fans.
"Rather than saying 'goodbye' or 'good night,' I'm just going to say, 'I'm going to get a drink, and I'm sure I'll see you guys before I leave,'" Stewart said.
We're going to miss you Jon Stewart. I don't think anyone can ever replace him when it comes to his take downs of the residents of Bullshit Mountain.
