Jon Stewart has announced his final episode as host of The Daily Show host will take place on August 6.

"I will be wearing a suit, I will more than likely be showered," Stewart said during Monday night's taping. "I'm sorry, I'll be wearing overalls and I won't shower."

"I hope that you will join us for that program," Stewart continued. "As a matter of fact, you can actually join us here in reality."

Stewart said fans can enter an online giveaway for two tickets to attend the final episode taping.

"It's going to be a pretty good episode, I think," he said. "And then maybe I'll see you here on August 6th, and we'll have a nice hug, we'll hug,"

Stewart has hosted the Comedy Central program since 1999, when he took over from Craig Kilborn.

The network announced on March 30 that Trevor Noah would replace Stewart as host, although he received criticism almost immediately for old jokes he had posted on Twitter.
