From Biography of Jon Stewart:

Jon Stewart has one primary responsibility in his line of work: to make people laugh. In the process of making fun of politicians, celebrities, media outlets, and others in the news, he has become the go-to news source for the 18 to 34 demographic in the United States.

Stewart, born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz, is certainly not the first person on late night television to make a name for himself at the expense of others. However, he is almost certainly the first late-night comedian to become such an important source for news and current events, not just for the politically apathetic, but for the politically involved.

Stewart had a fairly typical if unremarkable beginning to his career by spending some time in the comedy club circuit in New York City after college. Following that, he landed himself a couple of MTV shows in the early 1990s, most notably The Jon Stewart Show.

From Biography of Stephen Colbert:

Stephen Colbert of is not your average talk show host. Unlike other late night funnymen, on The Colbert Report, Colbert plays a caricature of cable television news pundits, allowing him to engage in incisive political commentary through the right-wing “wisdom” he spouts, never stepping out of character. Following the debut ofThe Colbert Report in October of 2005, it seemed unlikely that Colbert would be a long term success.

However, over six years later, Colbert is more than holding his own. He has become as important a satirical voice in politics and current events as his mentor and faux rival, Jon Stewart of The Daily Show. How many other practicing Catholics who moonlight as a Sunday School teacher can claim to have as much of an impact on Liberal America?

While mockery of politicians and members of the media is nothing new, Colbert’s jabs have often drawn more attention than those of the average comedian. His mockery of President Bush at the 2006 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner earned him a chilly glance and a nod from the former president.

In 2010, Colbert appeared before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, and Border Security after he spent a day with migrant workers in New York, where he comically described his experience.
