Just over a year ago, liberal comedian Jon Stewart decided to retire from his hosting duties for "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central. While Stewart has chimed inon politicsfrom time to time over the last year, he will make his big comeback during the Republican National Convention next week.

Stewart's comeback

For over a decade, Stewart was one of the most prominent voices in the media to represent the political left.

Using humor to get his point across, the Emmy-award winning talk shot host was known for not holding back his political views, and often taking hard shots at the Fox News Channel, in particular, host Bill O'Reilly. As originally reported by Vulture, The New York Daily News confirmed that Stewart will finally make his long awaited return.

Though Stewart won't be anchoring his own show, he will be joining his former Comedy Central colleague and friend, Stephen Colbert, who will being broadcasting live from the GOP convention for "The Late Show." Colbert and Stewart plan to cover both the Republican and Democratic Nation Conventions, and while the show will be live from its New York studios, they will still be granted "on-site presence" access at both events.

Stewart back in action

In addition to appearing with Colbert, Stewart recently signed a multi-year deal with HBO to produce content for its digital platform that could begin as early as later this year. Since retiring, Stewart has been active, most notably last year when he lobbied in Washington to force Congress to pass the 9/11 first responders' bill.

Convention expectations

For Democrats, the convention is expected to go smoothly as Bernie Sanders has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, paving a smooth path for the former Secretary of State to accept the party's nomination.

Donald Trump Democratic Party

However, the Republican convention is not expected to run as smoothly as up to 1,000 anti-Trump delegates are planning to protest and stage a massive walkout in opposition to Donald Trump becoming the party's nominee. In the aftermath of each convention, a Trump/Clinton match-up has already garnered enough interest to become one of the most controversial elections in recent history, as social media continues to bring awareness to Americans who don't normally take part in the political process.
