The Daily Show provides a comedic view of the news and political world, complete with segments by "correspondents" and interviews with guest celebrities and politicians. Craig Kilborn was the host until the fourth season, when Jon Stewart came in to take over after Kilborn left for CBS.
Trevor Noah is the host, executive producer and writer of Comedy Central’s Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning “The Daily Show." Noah joined “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in 2014 as a contributor.
Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah has hosted numerous television shows including South Africa’s music, television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival and two seasons of his own late night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.” He made his U.S. television debut in 2012 on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and has also appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman,” becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show.
Noah’s one-man show “The Racist” at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe was a sold out run that became one of the most talked about shows at the Festival that year. That same year, Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film “You Laugh But It’s True” which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. His Showtime comedy special, “Trevor Noah: African American” premiered in 2013. Recently, Noah performed for the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance.
In addition, Noah was nominated again for “Personality of the Year” at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards. He was featured on the October 2014 cover of GQ South Africa and has been profiled in Rolling Stone, Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal, and by CNN and NPR’s “Talk of the Nation.”
He continues to tour all over the world and has performed in front of sold out crowds at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and the Sydney Opera House in Australia as well as many US cities.
