Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are two of the funniest comedians in show business. On The Daily Show, Stewart mocks contemporary news coverage, while Colbert satirizes political pundit programs on The Colbert Report. For years now, the Comedy Central shows have joined hands in leading the empire of sociopolitical comedy, teaching America's youth about current events, and earning no shortage of Emmys for their troubles (The Daily Show has 19, and the younger The Colbert Report has 4).
Even though Stewart and Colbert are respectful colleagues and close friends, it's a lot of fun when they face off (albeit facetiously) for awards and the public's love. It's nearly impossible to choose considering that they both excel in different brands of humor, but the question must be asked: Who's funnier?
