Trevor Noah took over the Comedy Central show following Jon Stewart’s departure in the year 2015.
Trevor Noah announced on Thursday that he was departing “The Daily Show” after the show’s hostship for seven years ago.
“I have realized after seven years of hosting that my time has come to an end,” Noah said to his stunned audience. “But to put it in a lovely way, I’ve enjoyed having this series on the air. This has been among my biggest tasks, but it’s also been one of my greatest pleasures. I was enthralled in trying to figure out ways get people laughing, even when the stories are difficult to tell. —-y at the worst times we’ve laughed with each other and we’ve shed tears together for seven years, but in the last seven years I’m feeling like it’s finally time to say “I’m done.
Noah revealed to his audience “there’s an additional aspect of my life that I’d like to continue exploring” which includes learning languages. Noah stressed that the fact that he’s “not disappearing” however he was unsure of when he’ll officially step out of his long-running Comedy Central show.
“And I’m truly thankful, you know for a network that believed in this comedian who was unknown in this part of the planet,” Noah said.

“But I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. I wouldn’t want to accomplish this without your help. So we’ll work out the timeframes … We’ll be around for the moment. All I can do is say thank you for everything,” Noah said before ending his show.
The Comedy Central spokesperson told Fox News Digital, “We are thankful to Trevor for the amazing relationship we’ve had for the last seven years. Without a timetable for the end of his contract, we’re working together to determine the next steps.
