South African comedian Trevor Noah was anonymous when he came to the Daily Show in 2015 to replace Jon Stewart. He transformed the show after being on it for seven years and turned it into a flagship series for Comedy Central. He revealed his exit to the fans on Thursday.
He said he loved hosting the show, which has been one of his greatest joys and challenges. Furthermore, he said he had to figure out how to turn bad stories into funny ones on the worst of days. The exit date is not confirmed, and neither do we know if the successor has been chosen.
The network released a statement thanking Noah for his contribution and the success of the show. They said they were working on the next steps. They said they are excited about the new chapter in their 25+ year history.
The show has hilarious and sharp social commentary, making the audience understand the world. The late-night TV lineup has shrunk, with only a few regulars remaining, including Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and Stephen Colbert.
