“I think everybody has gone through a period of looking at their lives – every single person. We were in our apartments for two years, the world changed,” when asked about his choice to leave, Noah told the host. “We experienced collective grief. I think if you don’t look at your life and think about what you’d like to do differently, then you haven’t experienced what we’ve all experienced, and so I think my departure is a joyous thing.”

The comedian announced his departure as host on September 29, and the network confirmed this week that his final episode will run on December 8. Noah expressed his appreciation for the position, which he held for seven years after succeeding Jon Stewart in 2015. He stressed the need to leave while he is still “good” and “loved.”

“I don’t take anything for granted anymore. I don’t believe that life is a given. I don’t assume that things will come to me,” he added. “And so, I just go, ‘This is it, this is the time.’ And leave when people say, ‘Why are you leaving?’ Because imagine if it was the other way around? I go like, ‘I’m leaving’ and people are like, ‘Yeah, yeah.'”

“Everything,” he responded joyfully. “I’m so excited to do everything.” “I didn’t get to travel as much doing stand-up around the world. I’m excited,” Noah explained. “I used to go to a country and I would be there for weeks on end, I would learn the parts of the language or learn about the culture, and I’d do a show based around that. I’m gonna get back to doing that.”

The South African comedian has expressed his desire to work behind the camera, on other concepts. “Going back home, spending more time with family in South Africa. Everything is what I’m going to be doing,” he said, adding that there’s even a return to stand-up comedy in his future.  Despite he’s “still nervous” to get back onstage, Noah said he’s excited about returning to his roots. “I’m going back to the small rooms again, because that’s where you start the set,” he noted.
