Nel 2015, alcune sopracciglia sono state sollevate quando è stato annunciato che Trevor Noah, il comico sudafricano relativamente sconosciuto e corrispondente internazionale senior di “Daily Show”, avrebbe sostituito Jon Stewart come presentatore di “The Daily Show” di Comedy Central.
Trevor Noah is stepping down as host of The Daily Show
On September 29, Trevor Noah announced that he would be stepping as host of "The Daily Show" after seven years. "I want to say thank you to the audience for an amazing seven years. It's been wild, it's been truly wild," he said during a taping of the show Thursday. "And I realize, that after the seven years, my time is up."
He added that "We've laughed together, we've cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it's time."
Comedy Central said in a statement, per the New York Times, that Noah had a "demanding schedule," and that the network had "no timetable for his departure." As a result, the exact date of Noah's departure is uncertain, and whoever is to replace him as host is yet to be revealed. However, the network did add that they were "excited for the next chapter" of "The Daily Show."
