Trevor Noah Is Leaving The Daily Show After Seven Years As Host
After seven years as the host of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah announced his departure from the Comedy Central series at Thursday night’s live taping of the show in New York, saying, “My time is up.” Noah was practically unknown when he took over for John Stewart in 2015, but he has since become a staple of late-night TV.
Comedy Central has already issued a statement, saying, “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.” In their statement, the network appears to want to continue “The Daily Show” but hasn’t announced what “the next chapter” of the series will entail.
It's not yet clear when exactly Noah will be leaving the show, as the host’s departure may not be swift. Some late-night hosts give advance notice of their retirement a year or more before it happens, such as James Corden, who is expected to exit CBS' "The Late Late Show" in 2023.
