Lewis Black on Surviving Two Decades at 'The Daily Show'


What were your initial impressions of Jon Stewart when he took over?
I knew him from stand-up. I always thought he was smart and bright and he got it. He was easy to work with. People always say, "It's difficult to learn stand-up." Somehow the business of stand-up, for many of us, was harder than learning stand-up. The business end always eluded me on one level or another. But Jon seemed to get it pretty quickly. That impressed me because there weren't many of us who got it.
