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.

Rob McWilliams 01/27/12 03:06 PM

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)

heyzombiehitler 01/27/12 03:13 PM

Not surprised. Dudes a bad ass.

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.

Noodlemane 01/27/12 03:52 PM

This is amazing

Definitely him. He was interviewed for a documentary on City Gardens.


Charles777 01/27/12 04:12 PM

Clark 01/27/12 04:14 PM

I wish he could be our president.

Reznor on the left and Manson on Stewart's right?
I know those two have a history so it doesn't surprise me.
Should I be recognizing anyone else btw?

Adrian Villagomez 01/27/12 05:28 PM

How freaking cool.

Eraux 01/27/12 05:31 PM

All of Manson's band pretty much, but that's it. Twiggy next to Reznor, Gacy to the left of Stewart, and I dunno who the third guy is haha.

Spencer Control 01/27/12 06:22 PM

Bahahaha, that's awesome. I love a good pit.

This. My uncle went to school with Stewart and based off of his description this sounds like something he would do.

GirlsNoGood 01/27/12 06:38 PM

Richmond!

kazuma_ootaro28 01/27/12 08:05 PM

Now we just need a photo of a younger Stephen Colbert moshing at a Bad Brains show.

Gumbyjag 01/27/12 08:17 PM

That's pretty cool.

caraeryn 01/27/12 08:25 PM

Well, if true, that's fucking awesome.

gold soundz 01/27/12 08:41 PM

A few more pictures of Jon at city gardens will be posted soon. Anyone who thinks this is fake is an idiot. On his show he had awesome bands all the time...slayer, helmet, etc.

mickmadethelist 01/27/12 08:55 PM

I have the weirdest boner for Jon Stewart right now...

CavanaughPark 01/27/12 09:52 PM

I love Jon Stewart so incredibly much. This is awesome.

I wouldn't say that they are idiots, I'd say they are very hesitant to acknowledge a human being that damn awesome.

Ashur 01/27/12 11:45 PM

Holy shit. So cool.

Rob Hrx 01/28/12 03:16 AM

I just love this guy... awesome.

AnthonyBTT 01/28/12 04:23 AM

Anyone else notice the guitarist from gym class heroes standing in front of him? Before someone says it, I know its not him but boy howdy they look alike!

JinxRemoving 01/28/12 04:55 AM

If true, that would just make my crush on him even bigger.

schlotty 01/28/12 06:01 AM

Fuck that's awesome.
