Jon Stewart almost quit, “get me the fuck out of this. These people are insane.”

Third-Beat reports that Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart held a lengthy, public one-on-one to raise money for the Montclair Film Festival. Apparently they offered both shocking and very personal glimpses into their experience producing some of the best comedy around. "Colbert said that to him, 'the show' isn’t the performance in front of his audience. The 'show' is really what he does all day with his staff. 'There’s the joy in doing this hard thing,' he explained. 'That hard work together IS the show…. I then have the responsibility and pleasure of SHARING what that joy was [with the audience].'"
