Jon Stewart and ‘The Daily Show’ Announce Replacement Host, South African Comedian Trevor Noah [VIDEO]
It’s really happening, everybody. Jon Stewart and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show have announced the next host of the nightly political news satire show. South African comedian Trevor Noah will take over the show when Stewart says his final goodbye later this year.
It seems that Comedy Central has chosen wisely, as Noah has a good deal of experience in both hosting and comedy, He hosted his own late night talk show in South Africa in 2010 and joined The Daily Show in 2014 as a comedic contributor.
This video is a clip of one of Noah’s segments with Stewart from December 2014. Watch the show’s new host in action!
Good luck to the new host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah!
