Will the real Jon Stewart please stand up?

Only one of the men pictured below is actually Jon Stewart. One is a Jon Stewart impersonator, and the other one is actually me, if you can believe it! Can you guess which is which?

Obviously I'm joking, but to start from the beginning: I was looking through some old photographs the other day and I came across the above picture of myself and I thought "Holy crap I kinda look like Jon Stewart when I make that face!" which I realize sounds annoyingly arrogant. Believe me, it always makes me roll my eyes in a who-do-you-think-you-are kind of way when I hear a girl utter something like, "People say I look like Meg Ryan." Mmm-hmm. Sure they do. Maybe Meg Ryan looking in a funhouse mirror.

So I looked online to find a picture of Mr. Stewart to compare and contrast our ugly mugs when I came across the other photo posted above, which is a picture of an actual Jon Stewart impersonator who works in the New York City area, and who doesn't look one iota like Jon Stewart. So I came to the conclusion that if that guy thinks he looks like Jon Stewart when he so clearly does not, then I probably don't either.

Not that I want to look like Jon Stewart, mind you, but it would be a major improvement from the comparisons to Willem Dafoe and Chris Kattan that I usually get.

I think you kind of look like Brendan Frasier in that picture. Weird.

I will buy Jon Stewart, Chris Kattan, and Brendan Fraizer. But Willem Dafoe?

Hey, I have a picture saved on my phone of a guy I found at a live show that we decided could be your doppelganger. I'll email it later.

I'm thinking French Stewart.

I think the impersonator looks a lot like Jon Stewart. But its not just photos. It's the whole schtick that convinces you. I have a childhood friend that does Tom Jones in the Legends show. He's got the inflections, Welsh accent and the mannerisms and such. He's awesome.

At least you don't get Tori Spelling, or Ananis Morisette. Might as well just call me Mr. Ed.

That's right, KMack jumped my shit for saying she looked like Toni Collette. At least you don't look like Toni Collette.

Yeah, and Toni Collette. GREAT! Who would you rather look like, Toni Collette or Mango?
