News: Trevor Noah Confirmed As New Host Of The Daily Show

Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah is to be the new host of The Daily Show. It has been reported that he will take over later this year from long-standing host Jon Stewart, who announced he was leaving in February.

Noah has been a success in his appearances as one of the Comedy Central topical show's roving reporters and last night online reports suggested that he was a front-runner to take over from Stewart.

In a statement Stewart said: “I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor. He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with.” Stewart joked that he “may rejoin as a correspondent just to be a part of it!!!”

Noah is due to tour the UK this autumn. There is no news yet whether this appointment will affect his live dates.
