Jon Events (plus Grammy listings)
Whip out your salsa bowls and break
out the chips! For the first time in the history of music award shows, you're
GONNA WANNA PAR-TAY! WHOOOOOOP! WHOOOOOOP! WHO LET THE DOGS OUT!
Sorry. I'm very excited. Not since
the Letterman hosted the Academy Awards have I felt so much anticipation about
a windfall of free entertainment from one of my favorite stars. In case you
haven't heard, Jon is hosting the Grammy awards this Wednesday and you are going
to want to be there for every glorious moment. Every glorious moment with Jon,
that is. I have a deep suspicion that the Eminem/Elton John duet won't be particularly
glorious, but maybe that's just me.
I have listed some of the pre and
post Grammy coverage shows in the events section just in case Jon is in them,
so fire up your VCRs and get ready to overdose. A little too much Jon never
hurt anyone. In other words, there is no such thing as too much Jon. WHOOOOOOP!
Lanai's First Time
Okay, you wanna know how I fell in
love with Jon? Sigh . . . I have my friend Seth to thank for that. When I came
home from school this summer, he suggested that I watch something called "The
Daily Show With Jon Stewart." He thought it was a show I'd enjoy. He had no
idea . . . . I don't recall the first episode I saw, but they're all beautiful
because Jon's in them! I was instantly struck by how hot he is and how he made
me laugh; I was smitten. His delivery is amazing; the way he handles interviews
(the Spice Girls come to mind) is incredible. I watched the show every night
after that first night, and I looked forward to seeing all his different facial
expressions, the interviews, and so on. Basically, I just loved seeing him.
I began to search the Internet for
info, Jon groups, etc. Then I came here! Through Annie, the JSEB, the SSS, and
other Jon sites, I have found out so much wonderful information. He's a real
talent. It almost broke my heart when I found out that that he was married,
but then I thought, "Well, it's a good thing for him." (Why doesn't he have
kids yet?!) I recently bought his "Naked Pictures of Famous People" which was
hilarious! I loved it and I wish he'd write another book. I also wish I could
meet him and attend a Daily Show taping, but I'm all the way in California and
I won't be eighteen for a year. Damn that age rule! Actually, my 17th birthday
was on Sunday, January 14th, and it would be a total dream to meet him. I still
can't believe I didn't immediately recognize him when I saw Big Daddy, but then
again, I wasn't yet hip to his coolness.
Since I'm finishing my senior year
of high school away from home, I don't see TDS and Jon very often. But I subscribe
to the TDS Newsletter and visit comedycentral.com quite a bit. When I go home
on visits, I make sure to watch him. So, in a nutshell, this is what I love
about Jon: everything. It's even better now that he's gone two months without
smoking! I'm glad you all feel the way I do. Thanks for everything, and take

Sarah's First Time
time I saw Jon was in 1994 on The Jon Stewart show. I just loved the show and
watched it all the time. But at that point it was just the show and not so much
him. Fast forward about five years later and I see him again on The Daily Show.
I remember watching him mess up a line and make a joke of it. It was, for lack
of a better word, sweet. He has this openness that just brings you in. You know
that when you are watching him you are watching *him*. He shows that he is human
and that makes him lovable. I saw him do stand-up in a casino about two months
ago and he just lit up the place with his personality and humor. It was infectious.
I was nearly hooked at that point.
hooked me completely was my attendance at a Daily Show taping a few weeks ago.
He was just such an honest person. He was asked by an audience member why he
walked out onto the set in the funny way that he did and he had an honest answer.
He said he felt awkward in front of all of us, just as we did in the presence
of him. That made him just like us, not some big star we know nothing about.
He is a funny, sweet guy who deserves all that he has.
