Staff Writer, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"
Chico native Jason Ross has earned six Emmy Awards during his 10 years as a staff writer at “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” He is also one of the writers of the show’s two best-selling books, “America: The Book” (2004) and “Earth: The Book” (2010). In his talk, Ross provides a humorous and entertaining view of the use of satire in commenting on current events, both in the past and in the present day. He describes what he and his “Daily Show” colleagues do as “shouting back at the TV.”
