ANGRY OPTIMIST The Life and Times of Jon Stewart

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Biography & Memoir • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

If you've ever wondered about what working at "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" is like, wonder no more. With consummate skill, narrator Cassandra Campbell takes listeners from northern New Jersey to Manhattan, where Stewart went from stand-up comic to a new generation's Walter Cronkite. And Stewart would be the first one to say people relying on him for news is a little goofy, but some people do. Campbell conveys Stewart's wit, charm, and sensitivity. The best section describes how Stewart's love for dogs has translated into "The Daily Show's" office being a home for hounds during the workday. As one staffer puts it, "I can't imagine working in an office without dogs around." M.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2014]
