The Daily Show said goodbye to its longest-serving writer Thursday.

“I’ve done 2,400, 2,500 of these things. We’ve got a writer who has done 2,800, 2,900 of them,” Stewart said of J.R. Havlan, who had been with the show since its 1996 premiere. “He has — like the show — evolved. Grown from a comic-turned-writer into an accomplished writer with just a lovely wife and family.”

Stewart sent Havlan off with a personalized Moment of Zen, dating back to when the writer appeared on Craig Kilborn‘s version of the show.
