Trevor Noah is leaving ‘The Daily Show’

After seven years of hosting, Comedian Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central has announced that he is leaving the show as its host to focus on his niche.

He made the announcement in a video statement shared on his Twitter account on Thursday, September 29.

The South African comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host Noah declared that his “time is up” as the host of the Comedy Central satire news program after seven years.

“It’s been absolutely amazing. It’s something that I never expected,” Noah said of his experience hosting the show. “I found myself thinking throughout the time of everything we’ve gone through. The Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey, more pandemic and I realize that after the seven years, my time is up.”

“I want to say thank you to you, to you who watched this,” Noah said. “I never dreamed that I would be here. I sort of feel like ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’ I came here for a tour of what the previous show was and then the next thing you know I was handed the keys.”

“I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road, and when I got back out there, I realized there’s another part of my life out there that I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows,” Noah said.

He expressed his gratitude to his viewers, “The Daily Show” team and to Comedy Central, “who believed in this random comedian nobody knew on this side of the world.”

“I’ve loved hosting this show, it’s been one of my greatest challenges and one of my greatest joys,” Noah said. “I’ve loved trying to find a way to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly s***y, even on the worst days. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together.”

He did not share when his final show would be, but said he’d still be around for awhile.

“Don’t worry, i’m not disappearing,” Noah said. “If I owe you money, I’ll still pay you.”
