Since his arrival at "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart has become one of the major players in comedy as well as one of the most significant liberal voices in the media. In ANGRY OPTIMIST, Lisa Rogak follows his unlikely rise to stardom --- from his early days growing up in New Jersey, through his years as a struggling stand-up comic in New York, and on to the short-lived but acclaimed "The Jon Stewart Show," before at last landing a job as host of a half-hour comedy show that at the time was still finding its footing amidst roiling internal drama.
