Jon Stewart Promo for Upcoming Apple TV+ Show Makes Fun of Billionaire Space Race

Jon Stewart today shared a promo for his upcoming Apple TV+ show "The Problem With Jon Stewart," which is set to launch this September.

The three minute video that was shared on Twitter features a comedy skit making fun of tech company billionaires and space aficionados Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson.

The full video can be watched over on Twitter, and we're not going to embed it here on the site because it's very not safe for work.

Bezos is played by Jason Alexander, while a mop takes on the role of Richard Branson. The short also stars Tracy Morgan.

We still don't know a whole lot about Stewart's upcoming show, but Apple has described it as a multiple season single-issue series with each episode to be about an hour long. "The Problem With Jon Stewart" will be Stewart's first television series since "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" ended in 2015.

This looks incredibly stupid. If that trailer is any indication, 3rd grade humor and zero cleverness.

There is no doubt that Musk is an ego driven jerk but at least what he is doing with SpaceX is real and not just playtime for millionaires.

There must be a niche of older Americans who may find it somewhat funny… But by any other standard, this is catastrophically lame.

I'm old-ish and don't find it funny. Maybe intended for middle-school boys? I agree with you though... lame.

I'm rooting for Richard Branson to win this space race. He seems like a genuinely good person.
