Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band brought Jon Stewart’s final episode of “The Daily Show” to an end on Thursday night with renditions of “Land of Hope and Dreams” (requested by the host) and “Born to Run”. Stewart has been host of the acclaimed satirical news show since 1999 and is a longtime admirer of Springsteen.
In his final monologue, Stewart said:
Nothing ends. It’s just a continuation. It’s a pause in the conversation. So rather than saying goodbye or good night, I’m just going to say I’m gonna go get a drink”.
The man with the difficult job of filling Stewart’s shoes will be comedian Trevor Noah.
