After seven years, Trevor Noah will leave the “Daily Show”
Trevor Noah, a stand-up comedian from South Africa, was chosen to take over as host of “The Daily Show” when Jon Stewart retired in 2015, he was still relatively unknown to American audiences. He currently serves as the host of Comedy Central’s American news satire show The Daily Show. From eleven nominations, Noah received one prize, the Primetime Emmy.
“I found myself thinking throughout the time, everything we’ve gone through – the Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey and I realized that after the seven years, my time is up,” he said on Thursday night’s episode. Noah did not give a date when he said he would leave.
“I want to say thank you to you, to you who watched this,” Noah said. “I never dreamed that I would be here. I sort of feel like ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’ I came here for a tour of what the previous show was and then the next thing you know I was handed the keys.” “I’ve loved hosting this show, it’s been one of my greatest challenges and one of my greatest joys,” “I’ve loved trying to find a way to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly s***y, even on the worst days. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together.”
