SummerSlam: Jon Stewart enjoys his retirement on a walk through New York City with his son


Retirement seems to be agreeing with Jon Stewart. Less than three weeks after the 52-year-old comedian bade farewell to The Daily Show, he was spotted out enjoying a casual walk. Along with Jon for the stroll through New York City was his 11-year-old son, Nathan.

Retirement property is one option to consider as we get older and our housing needs change. By opting for the correct housing it’s possible to minimise the accommodation difficulties that people often face in later life. Rightmove’s retirement homes search facility allows you to find housing designed specifically for older people.

Kempton of Hermitage offers memory care and assisted living in Nashville TN, which are designed to cater specifically for the needs of the retired and help maintain freedom and quality of life. This retirement community also offers the security, peace of mind and social lifestyle that comes with communal living.

Jon covered his salt-and-pepper hair with a pea-green cap, although some hair was still visible on the man’s head and face. Dark sunglasses protected Jon’s eyes from the bright and sunny day as he wandered through New York’s Tribeca neighbourhood. A grey T-shirt and khaki trousers made up Jon’s outfit, and he finished off the look with a pair of dusty grey shoes.

While young Nathan’s shirt was the same shade of grey as his father’s, the child had a black-and-white printed design on the front.Blue shorts and matching flip-flop sandals finished off the outfit for the brown-haired Nathan. Jon’s other child, nine-year-old daughter Maggie, and his wife, Tracey, did not seem to join the boys for their day out on-the-town.

On August 6, Jon hosted The Daily Show for the last time, bringing to an end an extremely celebrated run of almost 16 years.Coming onto the comedy program to replace Craig Kilborn in 1999, Jon quickly turned the program into an ongoing commentary on the state of news, politics, and the media industry. That work won The Daily Show 20 Emmy Awards – including 10 for the show and seven for writing – plus two Peabody Awards for election coverage.

Jon brought back most of the Daily Show’s correspondents – many of them famous comedians and actors like Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, John Oliver, Ed Helms, and Olivia Munn – for that final episode and ended the night with a concert from Bruce Springsteen. ‘Rather than saying goodbye, or goodnight, I’m just going to say I’m gonna go get a drink,’ Jon told the audience when he signed off for good.

While Jon has not been explicit about all of his post-Daily Show plans, he has indicated that he might want to direct again, following his directorial debut in 2015 with Rosewater. He will, however, host Sunday night’s WWE wrestling’s SummerSlam event. Taking Jon’s place at The Daily Show will be South African comedian Trevor Noah.

The 18th edition of "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations," has just been released, the first for the electronic age and a chance to take in some of the new faces, events and catchphrases of the past 10 years. General editor Geoffrey O'Brien says he has expanded upon the trend set by his predecessor, Justin Kaplan, of incorporating popular culture into an anthology once known for classical citations. Shakespeare and the Bible still reign, but room also has been made for Steve Jobs, Madonna and Michael Moore, Justin Timberlake and Jon Stewart. (AP Photo/Brad Barket, file)
