Jon Stewart Plays Surprise Show at North 2 Shore in Asbury Park

Daily Show host Jon Stewart has picked up a new side hustle-drummer.

Stewart debuted his skills on the skins this weekend during the Asbury Underground arts and music crawl this weekend at the North 2 Shore Festival.

His band–Church and State–played a full set at the Asbury Park Brewery, located on Cookman Avenue, on June 15.

“We have never played in public,” Stewart said at the beginning of the band’s set. “I certainly have never played music in public.

“Please lower your expectations,” he continued, joking that many of the band’s songs weren’t even named yet.

Asbury Park was the first of three cities to host the 2024 North to Shore Festival. North to Shore moves to Atlantic City between Monday, June 17, and Sunday, June 23. The final weekend will be held in Newark from Sunday, June 23, and Sunday, June 30.
