Background: Busboy Productions is Jon Stewart's production company.

1st Logo
(October 25, 1993-1996)

Logo: A black-and-white picture of a busboy holding a basket of dishes is shown. The text "BUSBOY" is superimposed over the body. At the bottom of the basket is the spaced out word "PRODUCTIONS".

Variant: Sometimes, the text drops in.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show. On Jon Stewart: Unleavened, we hear the sound of glass shattering followed by Jon Stewart saying "Oop! Sorry."

Availability: Extinct. It appeared on The Jon Stewart Show (not to be confused with The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), which is long gone from television. It was also seen at the end of Jon Stewart: Unleavened.

2nd Logo
(October 17,2005-July 20, 2015)

Logo: On a black background, a "B" streaks in from the left of the screen, leaving behind its left section, which soon follows it (similar to Touchstone's "Snake" logo). When the "B" is finished forming, the word "BUSBOY" appears below it, in a font resembling DIN 1451.

FX/SFX: The animation of the "B."

Music/Sounds: A redone version of the previous logo's second musical variant.

Availability: Was seen on pre-2015 episodes of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, The Colbert Report (where the sound is quieter) and Important Things with Demetri Martin (where it is sped up and louder).

3rd Logo
(September 28, 2015-)
Logo: On a dark blue background with rippling lights above it, several lines fall down and form the Busboy logo, but in a haphazardly arranged fashion. The line then adjust themselves into proper position and the "BUSBOY" text from before appears below in a flash.

FX/SFX: The logo dropping down, the flash.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show, with the audio from before playing over it.

Availability: Currently seen on later episodes of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Comedy Central.
