Why You Might Already Know Trevor Noah’s Daily Show Replacement
Noah announced to a shocked studio audience Sept. 29 that he planned to step down as host after seven years. Comedy Central has not stated when his last show will be.
“I realized that after the seven years, my time is up,” he shared. “But in the most beautiful way, honestly. I’ve loved hosting this show. It’s been one of my greatest challenges. It’s been one of my greatest joys. I’ve loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh even when the stories are particularly s–ty on the worst days. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”
Trevor cited the pandemic as one of the reasons why he realized it was time to leave.
“I spent two years in my apartment not on the road,” he said. “Stand up was done. When I got back out there again, I realized there’s another part of my life I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows. I miss just being everywhere doing everything.”
