Trevor Noah

33-year-old comedian and TV host from South Africa, Trevor Noah, will host The Daily Show through 2022.

Comedy Central is obviously happy with the progress Trevor Noah has made on “The Daily Show.”

The 33-year-old comedian and TV host from South Africa has renewed his contract as the show's host through 2022.

This was announced by Comedy Central President Kent Alterman on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

Expressing his excitement via a statement, Noah said, 'I'm thrilled to be continuing this amazing journey with both fans of 'The Daily Show' and Comedy Central.”

“It's really exciting to renew this contract for either five more years or until Kim Jong Un annihilates us all – whichever one comes first.”


As part of the new deal, Noah will host and produce the annual, year-end, 'Daily Show specials,' starting this year.

When Noah took over from Jon Stewart tin 2015, there were conversations about his ability to replace the TV legend. Noah, however, made an impact and built his audience with his coverage of President Donald Trump's campaign months.


This 5-year renewal means that Noah will still get to cover the already anticipated American presidential election in 2020.

Noah made his debut as a contributor to the nightly satirical show in December 2014, before replacing Stewart who left the show after 16 years.
