Trevor Noah To Step Down As Host Of The Daily Show
Comedian Trevor Noah has announced he is standing down as host of The Daily Show.
Noah said he was “filled with gratitude for the journey” but that there was “another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring”.
The 38-year-old has hosted the satirical news and talk show since taking over from Jon Stewart in 2015.
He said the timing of his departure would be announced later and that he would continue as host in the meantime.
Noah began his career in his native South Africa, releasing a string of stand-up specials and hosting a late-night talk show before relocating to the US in 2011.
He was still a relative unknown when he was chosen to take over the Daily Show on the Comedy Central network, but has since become an internationally-recognised star and won numerous television awards.
