Everything you need to know about the man taking over from Jon Stewart

South African comedian Trevor Noah is the new host.

He’s a South African comedian. In fact, he’s from Soweto.


He’s just been announced as Jon Stewart’s replacement on The Daily Show. Big shoes to fill.

He’s been on The Daily Show three times in his life. Here’s one of those times.

Noah was born to a black mother and white father, and calls his birth “a crime” because his parents’ relationship was illegal at the time.

He speaks six languages. SIX!

His comedy is smart, covers themes like race, violence and politics.


You might have seen him at the Vodafone Comedy Festival in Dublin last year.

He’ll be back this October
