COMEDY CENTRAL NAMES TREVOR NOAH AS NEXT HOST OF “THE DAILY SHOW”
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.”
I've only seen him once on QI, but even that left an impression - a very good one. Fingers crossed that he'll make the show his own and succeed!
