As his 16 years at the helm of Comedy Central’s primetime hit comes to a close, it’s clear that Jon is letting himself explore areas of his career that were largely ignored for some time.

This was the case when he visited The Comedy Cellar, a premier locale for NYC comedy fans, on Wednesday night.

Following Jon Stewart’s departure announcement on  February 10, 2015,  Comedy Central gave the official  word  on Monday (March 30, 2015) that  Trevor Noah  would be  taking over as host for The Daily Show.
