In 2001, he had his surname legally changed to "Stewart".
"The goals for me have changed somewhat. There's a bit of seduction to the idea of being on network, but it got to the point where that wasn't important. What's important is doing something worthwhile. Which is why I've always avoided being on a sitcom. Yeah, it's high-profile and it's on a network, but you know what? You could be on 'Suddenly Stewart'."---Jon Stewart to Aaron Barnhart, published in The Inquirer, September 1, 1998.
"One of the nice things about stand-up is you work on material and hone it and really give it time to breathe and live. And when you're doing a monologue every day, rather than discussing things that you really believe, you go, 'Hey, look at this, a guy in Wisconsin fell into a vat of macaroni. Come on, we can do something with that! I'll do an impression!' You start to lose sight of what you actually think."---Jon Stewart quoted in Rolling Stone, January 26, 1995.
"Jon Stewart is the sexiest, most soulful apparition haunting late-night TV. He flirts with women and men with equal abandon, even hitting on inanimate objects like the Pez dispensers and dolls he turns into puppets. The message isn't that he's hoping to fuck his guests after the show but that he wants to twirl them around his fingers while the cameras are running. Seduction tames the world for Stewart and calms him down, and he is so successful at it, his guests fling themselves on him, or cuddle him, or rear up with unprecendented rambuctiousness."---From "Going to Bed With Jon Stewart" by Laurie Stone in Village Voice, March 7, 1995.
" ... The prom was my first time, too. Back then, your tux was suppose to match your dates dress, so mine was the color of rotten cream with a burgundy tie. One look at the photos and it's obvious why everyone thought we were on drugs back then."---Jon Stewart on the first time he wore a tux to GQ
" ... They always say politics is show business for ugly people. But I think a much more appropriate saying would be that Washington is Hollywood that actually matters. These are people who, for all their apparent insanity, control nearly every aspect of our lives."---Jon Stewart quoted to Time, Sep. 27, 2004.
