Updated with video: Jon Stewart got a job offer tonight during The Daily Show. Yesterday he announced his final day hosting the Comedy Central series would be August 6. Tonight, his guest, Jeff Garlin, star of ABC’s The Goldbergs, made another announcement: “On behalf of ABC, and Sony Pictures Television, I am offering you a role on The Goldbergs as my new friend, Toby – that’s what the writers came up with, Toby – Schwartz. And you own a lotion shop that’s next to my furniture store, and you and I talk about things.”
“Toby! Toby! Toby!” chanted Stewart’s enthusiastic studio audience.
“A lot of people have said to me, ‘What are you going to do when you’re done?’,” Stewart responded. “And, I’ve had a secret dream, and that is to pretend to be a lotion shop owner. And for you to make that dream come true…Thank you.”
