Trevor Noah seems to be getting a whole new start! The Daily Show host, 38, is reportedly getting ready to turn in his mic and move on from the popular Comedy Central series. Per Variety, Trevor admitted to the audience during the Thursday, September 28 taping of the show in New York City that he would be leaving, according to two sources for the outlet. It’s not yet clear when he will step away, or who will be his replacement. HollywoodLife reached out to Trevor’s rep for comment, but didn’t hear back by the time of this publication.
“We are grateful to Trevor for our amazing partnership over the past seven years,” a statement from Comedy Central read, per Variety. “With no timetable for his departure, we’re working together on next steps As we look ahead, we’re excited for the next chapter in the 25+ year history of The Daily Show as it continues to redefine culture through sharp and hilarious social commentary, helping audiences make sense of the world around them.” Since he took over hosting duties in 2015, Trevor has followed in the footsteps of other sharp-tongued comedic geniuses, including Jon Stewart, who hosted from 1999-2015, and Craig Kilborn, who hosted from 1996-1998.
