Jon Stewart is coming back to television for his own AppleTV+ series, The Problem With Jon Stewart. The new one-hour, single-issue series is set to discuss today’s current events, including Stewart’s advocacy work. Basically, Stewart is back to talk about the issues in a humorous way, similar to how he did on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.
Stewart revealed a teaser trailer for the series poking fun at billionaires — Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Mark Zuckerberg — as they race to space. Actor Jason Alexander plays Jeff Bezos in the three-minute sketch and pokes fun at Bezos’ recent nude leak and the billionaires’ obsession with rockets shaped like their penis. It really makes no sense other than to make fun of the billionaires’ quest for space.
The series may have some parody clips starring Stewart’s famous friends as little segments, but the show will be filmed before a live audience and will include a companion podcast.
