Last Week Tonight host John Oliver has a few ideas about his mentor Jon Stewart’s future after his final episode of The Daily Show on Thursday.

“I want to see him become the official King of New Jersey,” Oliver tells Entertainment Weekly. “I think New Jersey would probably move to a monarchy–it would be him and Springsteen duking it out, War of the Roses style.”

In all seriousness, Oliver would like to see his former boss take a breather—or at least take on some low-pressure projects. “I would like to see him probably rest for a second. Probably… standup?” Oliver says. “That’s something he can go back to.”
