South African comedian, Trevor Noah, has announced that he will step down as host of The Daily Show after seven years. Trevor Noah has hosted the Comedy Central show since 2015 when he succeeded Jon Stewart. He did, however, state that he will continue to host the comedy show until his departure is formally confirmed.
Trevor Noah began his career in comedy in his home country of South Africa before migrating to the United States in 2011. He was a relatively unknown comedian when he took over as host of the Daily Show, but he has since risen through the ranks of the comedy world and won numerous awards.
He made the news after his show on Thursday night, saying that a lot has transpired since he started hosting the show in 2015, including the Donald Trump administration and the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, he concluded his time had come to an end, albeit in a lovely way. Trevor Noah praised his staff and devoted followers for their support throughout his trip. It is currently unknown which path Trevor Noah will pursue next on his adventure.
