After seven successful years, Trevor Noah announced that his time was up.

“After the seven years, my time is up, but in the most beautiful way. I’ve loved hosting the show, it’s been one of my greatest challenges, it’s been one of my greatest joys,” Trevor Noah said.

The stand-up comedian, who’s sold out shows in South Africa and around the world, took over the hosting of the show back in 2015 when Jon Stewart left.

Emphasising that his exit is not immediate, Noah took the time to thank his team at The Daily Show (past and present) as well as the audience. The entertainer and author of Born A Crime revealed that he plans to devote himself more to his first love, which is stand-up comedy.

He has already announced that he will also be bringing his 2023 comedy tour to home soil.

As it stands, it is not clear when his actual exit would take place, or whether the Paramount Global cable network had begun to consider a successor.

“We are grateful to Trevor for our amazing partnership over the past seven years. With no timetable for his departure, we’re working together on next steps.

“As we look ahead, we’re excited for the next chapter in the 25+ year history of The Daily Show as it continues to redefine culture through sharp and hilarious social commentary, helping audiences make sense of the world around them,” a statement by the network to Variety read.


Fans of The Daily Show have expressed their sadness after Trevor Noah’s announcement as they thanked him for a great and educational seven years.

“Trevor Noah took over from Jon Steward and ran that desk his own way. He turned complex political stories hilarious. Making news less morbid and more enjoyable. He hosted the Grammy’s and White House correspondence dinner, a milestone for comedians.I can’t wait to see what’s next,” said @dumigwebu

While @stormymind wrote: “I’m one of his biggest fans. Love his humor, his intelligence, his history. Born in South Africa during a time when being bi-racial could cost you and your parents everything. Anyway, I just found out Trevor Noah is leaving the Daily Show. I’ll miss him.”–F-A&s=19


However, other fans linked Trevor Noah’s exit to Cold Heart singer, Dua Lipa.

This is after the star was seen getting cosy and even seen kissing the musician in pictures that have been circulating on social media.
