Trevor Noah To Host ‘The Daily Show’

South African comedian Trevor Noah will be the new host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show”

Speaking from Dubai, where he is on tour, Noah said of his selection, “You don’t believe it for the first few hours. You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol.”

Born in Soweto to a Xhosa mother and a Swiss father, Noah offers an unique perspective on race. ”I didn’t live a normal life – I grew up in a country that wasn’t normal. My mother had to be very clandestine about who my father was. He couldn’t be on my birth certificate,” Noah told the New York Times.


As of yet, there is no exact date for Noah’s transition into full-time host.
