Everyone is wondering what the funny man’s next step will be!

Well, he finally revealed the answer on the Employee Of The Month podcast. He said:

“I’ve got maybe four or five more years with the kids before they really don’t want anything to do with me. I’m just not there … But believe me, I feel like I’m going to work even more, I’ll just be able to do it more near to them … I’d love to do more stand-up.”

We can’t WAIT to see a Jon Stewart stand-up special! We just wish he could do that AND The Daily Show.

But Jon also discussed why he felt the time was right to step down, explaining:

“You can only go so far with four facial expressions and five-to-seven curse words. There are so many iterations of that, that you can do, before people just go hmm. I would love to see the next iteration of that.”

Aww. We’ll definitely be missing this man more than he’ll ever know! And there’s going to be a TON of pressure on the next host whomever that may be.

But it seems like Jon’s happy with his decision and that’s what really matters in the end!
