Trevor Noah is leaving The Daily Show after 7 years but why?

Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” has announced his exit from the anchor desk. Here is everything we know so far and what you should know.

Noah said in a video statement posted on Twitter Thursday that after seven years as host of the Comedy Central satirical news show, his “time is up.”

“It’s been amazing. It’s something that I never expected,” Noah said of his experience hosting “The Daily Show.”

I found myself thinking throughout the time of everything we’ve gone through. The Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey, more pandemic and I realize that after the seven years, my time is up.

Trevor Noah, a South African standup comedian, was a relative unknown to American audiences when he was named host of “The Daily Show” after Jon Stewart stepped down in 2015.

“I want to say thank you to you, to you who watched this,” Noah said. He further added:

I 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.

Why Trevor Noah is leaving “The Daily Show” now?

Noah hinted that his decision to leave the show was motivated by his desire to do more standup work.

As Trevor Noah stated:

I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road, and when I got back out there, I realized there’s another part of my life out there that I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows.

He also thanked his fans, “The Daily Show” team, and Comedy Central for “believing in this random comedian nobody knew on this side of the world.”

Noah then said:

I’ve loved hosting this show, it’s been one of my greatest challenges and one of my greatest joys. I’ve loved trying to find a way to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly s***y, even on the worst days. We’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together.

He didn’t mention when his last show would be, but he said that he’d be around for a while.

“Don’t worry, I’m not disappearing,” Noah assured them.

That’s all for today, thanks for reading this article.
