Happy birthday Jon Stewart!
The inimitable host of "The Daily Show" turns 50 years old today, marking half a century of quite an impressive life. From his early stand-up comedy days (when he sported a leather jacket and cigarette at all times) to his rise as one of America's most revered political satirists, Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz (his real name, in case you didn't know) has made us laugh just as much as he's made us think.
In honor of the millennial generation's most trusted news source as he turns 50, we put together 50 reasons why it's pretty much impossible not to love him. Check out the photos, videos and tidbits about him below and tell us your favorite Stewart memory in the comments.
