Jon Stewart revealed last year that playing drums was his newest hobby, but it looks like the comedian and former Daily Show host can now call himself a musician.
Stewart made a surprise appearance on his buddy Seth Meyers’ Late Night show as his guest drummer, initially hiding his identity with a black baseball cap and shades. Meyers asked the “strange man on drums” to reveal himself, but before doing so, Stewart showed off his drumming skills, impressing the audience before removing his disguise.
Besides showing off his musical talent, Stewart announced that for HBO’s NEXT for Autism benefit Night of Too Many Stars he is auctioning off a chance to make a lucky fan’s dreams come true with a chance to become a staff writer for Late Night With Seth Meyers for a day.
Stewart is no stranger to playing the drums for a good cause. He recently drummed for New Jersey-based band No Wine For Kittens’ song “Catastrophes,” benefitting the National Suicide Prevention Hotline as part of music blog Speak Into My Good Eye’s “24 Hour Songwriting Challenge.”
Watch his drumming below, which Meyers referred to as “better than we thought he would be.”
