“Guys, let me make something clear: I’m not dying,” Jon Stewart told an audience before a taping of The Daily Show. The host’s pre-show Q&As are compiled in this excellent highlight reel, which showcases his impressive riffing skills and a solid impression of a geriatric stand-up routine. The audience asked questions about which public figure Stewart likes the best (“Do you watch the program?”) and what he learned while making Rosewater (“I am a huge hummus fan”). He also let the audience know that we can probably expect him to return to stand-up eventually—“That’s how I started, and I’m sure that’s how I will end.” And when Stewart names his favorite Springsteen songs, you’ll never think of “Blinded by the Light” or “My City of Ruins” in the same way again.
