Noting that his departure is not imminent, he did not provide a date. According to Noah, certain issues still need to be resolved.
Neither a replacement nor future intentions were mentioned by him.
Noah, 38, succeeded Stewart as host of the late-night Comedy Central show on September 28, 2015. “I realised that after… seven years, my time is done, but in the most wonderful way,” he stated.
The comedian from South Africa continued, “I’ve adored presenting this show.” The difficulty of this task is among my highest. This has been one of life’s biggest pleasures for me. I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of coming up with a way to make folks chuckle under the bleakest of circumstances.
After taking a two-year gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he said he was inspired to pursue new interests after getting back into stand-up. He expressed gratitude to the viewers and the network for the incredible opportunity they had provided him with when he was relatively unknown in the United States.
Saying, “I never imagined I’d be here,” he was blown away by his current situation.
Please don’t worry; I’m not going anywhere. Noah made a light-hearted remark about his willingness to settle whatever financial obligations he may have to others.
In a statement, the network said, “Trevor, we want to thank you for our seven years of working together. Even though he hasn’t given us a date for his departure, we’re already planning for what’s next.
We look forward to the next chapter in the 25+ year history of “The Daily Show,” which “continues to shape society via sharp and funny social commentary, helping audiences make sense of the world,” the statement read.
Noah was facing an uphill battle when attempting to duplicate Stewart’s success.

In a 2020 interview with Variety, he admitted, “I will say, the first two years were dreadful — and it was horrible because I had taken over one of America’s most revered organisations.”
It was a year of people telling me I didn’t deserve to be in that chair and that I shouldn’t be performing the job, even though Jon Stewart had handed over the reigns to me. I still think that,” he added.
However, Noah eventually gained traction and a massive following. His popularity soared when Donald Trump was elected president, because of Noah’s skill at slamming him.
For the fifth year in a row, the show under Noah was nominated for an Emmy as best variety talk series, but ultimately lost to “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO.
