Jon Stewart bid his longtime correspondent farewell, as he is leaving the "Daily Show" for a show of his own on HBO. John Oliver ended the night in tears as Stewart’s good-bye included clips of some of Oliver’s most memorable moments on the show. Check out the video above for these funny moments.
According to the Hollywood Reporter on Dec. 20, Oliver came out thinking he was going to do a piece about the phone hacking of the British Royals and with that Stewart did the report, citing the “dry wit” the Brits have and up popped clips of Oliver from past shows. Oliver got the lay of the land saying “Are we not doing the bit?”
Stewart said to him, “No, of course we’re not doing the bit. What the f--- do you think we’re doing here?
Apparently Oliver was prepared to do the British family bit about phone jacking, but realized it was all for nothing as he was the center of attention for a farewell “bit.”
Saying good-bye wasn’t easy for Stewart either, he seemed to get hit with emotion periodically while orchestrating the farewell for his friend. By the time it was done, Oliver was visibly crying. He was truly touched!
