Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” has declared his intention to leave the anchor chair. Trevor Noah, a 38-year-old South African comedian who was not yet well-known in the United States, was in that position when he was chosen to host the Comedy Central’s lineup.
Thursday night, while the Comedy Central show was being taped, Noah announced that, after seven years as the host of the Comedy Central satire news programme, his “time is up” in a video statement that was posted on Twitter on Thursday.
In a statement, Comedy Central stated that the network has been collaborating with Mr. Noah “for a long time to figure out how he can maintain the demanding schedule.”
After all, the network added that “with no timetable for his departure, we’re working together on next steps.”
The Official Announcement
The announcement was made just one day after Trevor Noah and Dua Lipa were pictured out on a date. The 27-year-old singer and comedian dined at Miss Lily’s Jamaican Restaurant in New York City on Wednesday, Sept. 28, before sharing a passionate kiss outside. A witness told the Daily Mail that the two “sat close together during the lunch” and that they “left together and strolled, stopping for extended embraces and on the second kiss with hugs.”
Trevor Noah’s Statement
“We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together,” Mr. Noah said during a taping of the show on Thursday that was released before the show aired. “But after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”
Also, “It’s been absolutely amazing, it’s something that I never expected,” Trevor Noah said of his experience hosting the show. Therefore,“I found myself thinking the time of everything we’ve gone through. The Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey, more pandemic and I realize that after seven years, my time is up.”
“I want to say thank you to you, to you who watched this,” Noah said. “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.”
“Don’t worry, I'm not disappearing,” Noah said. “If I owe you money, I’ll still pay you.”
More Time for Stand-up Comedy
Noah made it clear that he intended to spend more time performing stand-up.
Noah said, when stand-up was finished, “I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road. When I got back out there again, I realised that there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring.”
