On June 10, John Oliver will begin his run as guest-host of The Daily Show, while Jon Stewart takes a hiatus to direct his first feature film, Rosewater. Oliver’s first guest will be Seth Rogen.
Oliver has worked at The Daily Show since 2006. Later this summer, he is also set to host the fourth season of John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show on Comedy Central.
Oliver joked in the press release, ”Don’t worry, it’s still going to be everything that you love about The Daily Show, just without the thing that you love the most about it.” Stewart returns Tuesday, September 3.
Here’s a clip of Oliver’s stand-up to ease you into the transition:
