Young Jon Stewart Moshing at Dead Kennedys Show
A photographer has unearthed a photo of The Daily Show's Jon Stewart moshing at a The Dead Kennedys show when he was younger. Could this man be any cooler? Check the replies for the image.

According to the photographer, the man in the center is Jon.

Highly unlikely, but that would make a good story.

The jaw is too wide to be Jon. His face was really thin when he did the Jon Stewart Show, and even now, his chin doesn't jut that much.

Still, Stewart's a genius.

Irish Willis Peele snapped a lot of photographs of Virginia "speed punk" band Front Line back in the 1980s, including this one, from a Dead Kennedys show in Richmond, Va. Peele says the guy in the center is William and Mary student Jon Leibowitz — who later moved to New York and now has a pretty successful comedy career under the name Jon Stewart. In case you're wondering, it adds up — Stewart was at William and Mary until 1984. (gawker)

Okay, rescinding my comment, because that second photo is definitely Jon Fucking Stewart.

If this gets a bit on the Daily Show I'll be able to cross an item off my bucket list.

Jon Stewart was also a bartender at Trenton's notorious City Gardens, a venue that hosted many famous punk and hardcore acts while he was there. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this was him.
