Trevor Noah to Step Down as Host of The Daily Show

Trevor Noah to Step Down as Host of The Daily Show – Trevor Noah is leaving The Daily Show after seven years as host. He says he wants to do more stand-up comedy. The 38-year-old comedian was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to the United States in 2011. When longtime host Jon Stewart left in 2015, he had big shoes to fill.

He quickly built his own brand, which was perfect for a time when what was popular online was often more important than what was popular on cable TV. During his time as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, he had to talk about important events in American history like the Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the 2021 attacks on the US Capitol in a sensitive way.

“I spent two years in my apartment (during Covid), not on the road,” Noah told his studio audience late on Thursday. “Standup was done, and when I got back out there again, I realised that there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring.” The Daily Show posted a clip of Noah’s remarks on social media.

“We have laughed together, we have cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time,” he said. Noah concluded his words by expressing gratitude to his audience, who stood to applause him. Noah, who roasted US politicians and the media at the White House Correspondents Association dinner in April, did not specify his specific departure date in his remarks on Thursday. Nobody knew who would succeed him.

Noah stated in a 2016 interview that a comedian’s aim is the key to tackling current events via a comic lens, adding that he learned from his failures. Regarding succeeding his legendary predecessor, he stated, “I don’t think I would ever have been ready, but that’s when you must do it – you will not be ready.”
