As revealed back in March, Trevor Noah will be taking over as host of Comedy Central’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Daily Show.” A promo has been released that shows Noah taking over Jon Stewart’s desk and reveals that Noah’s first episode as host will air September 28.
Noah joined “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in 2014 as a contributor. He made his U.S. television debut in 2012 on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and has also appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman,” becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show. Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, he has successfully become the top comedian in Africa. Noah has hosted numerous television shows including his own late night talk show in his native country, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.”
As previously announced, Stewart’s final episode will air August 6.
