'Tell your friends you'll see them in August.'

I hope you didn't have many plans for the month of July. Beginning this Friday, June 26th, Comedy Central will stream every episode of Jon Stewart's The Daily Show ever made. That's more than 2,000 episodes of pithy political commentary, winding interviews, and hundreds of jokes made at the expense of those in power.

Your Month of Zen

Comedy Central is calling the marathon Your Month of Zen — a nod to Stewart's recurring segment Moment of Zen — and will begin with Stewart's first day behind the big shiny desk in 1999. It'll probably be worth it to watch at least the first few episodes, if only to see how the show has changed in its more than 15 years on the air. Something else to keep in mind: four presidential elections have taken place in the US since The Daily Show started, and why wouldn't you want to revisit old media coverage of those elections?

The marathon begins tomorrow at 12PM ET and you can stream it right here.
