The Daily Show finally has its new host!
The Daily Show has announced that Trevor Noah will be the new host of the show. The 31-year-old made his debut as a contributor in December. Fast forward three months and he’s replacing Jon Stewart as the host of the popular Comedy Central program.
When asked about replacing a legend like Jon Stewart he stated:”It’s an honor to follow Jon Stewart. He and the team at The Daily Show have created an incredible show whose impact is felt all over the world, In my brief time with the show they’ve made me feel so welcome. I’m excited to get started and work with such a fantastic group of people.”
Stewart announced his retirement this past February. Noah, a South African native, has hosted numerous TV shows in South Africa, including two seasons of his own late-night talk show, Tonight With Trevor Noah.
