Trevor Noah to Replace Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’

by The Insider 1:38 mins

“The Daily Show” has a new host. Trevor Noah, a South African comedian, has been named as the successor to Jon Stewart’s coveted seat on the Comedy Central show. Since it was announced in February that Stewart would be stepping down from his hosting job at the show after 15 years, a handful of prospective replacements were considered. The 31-year-old Noah joined the show in December 2014 and since then has appeared in only three segments with Stewart, including one about Ebola, Boko Haram, and a game of chess. While he may not be a household name in the States just yet, he is well known in South Africa from hosting his own late-night talk show, a handful of radio programs, and the South African Music Awards. He also headlined a Showtime standup special in 2014 and was the first South African comedian to appear on “The Tonight Show” and “The Late Show With David Letterman.” Check out the video to get to know Noah a bit better, and tune in to “The Insider With Yahoo.”
