As he enters the final week of his 16 year long tenure as host of ‘The Daily Show’, Jon Stewart has revealed the three guests he’ll be inviting onto the show before the final episode next Thursday, details of which remain shrouded in secrecy.

CNN Money reports that Louis C.K., Denis Leary and Amy Schumer – all friends of the departing host – will be appearing on Monday through Wednesday next week before the very last Stewart-fronted edition on August 6th. Schumer, of course, was recently revealed as one of the names Stewart was interested this year to replace him on the Comedy Central chat show, though she turned it down. Current cast member Trevor Noah has already been named as Stewart's successor.

“Remember, next week is our last week,” Stewart told his audience last night (Thursday July 30th). “We’re going to have a ball, and I can’t wait to show my appreciation at all the support and enthusiasm that you guys have given the show all these years.”

His final episode is scheduled as 50 minutes in length, which will allow for a couple of extra surprises and more guests than normal. Former guest Bill O'Reilly and controversial presidential nominee Donald Trump have been rumoured in some quarters as among the guests, which would undoubtedly see sparks fly between them and Stewart. Fingers crossed!

Stewart’s final weeks as host of the political and satirical ‘Daily Show’ have been a tad obscured by the revelation that he had allegedly “secret” meetings at the White House with President Obama, though Stewart has denied anything sinister or covert about them.

He’s just the latest long-established American chat show host to call it a day in the last 12 months. ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ and Craig Ferguson’s ‘Late Late Show’ have all ended in the last year, though the latter of these has been successfully relaunched with James Corden as host.
