Trevor Noah Leaving The Daily Show
Noah surprised his audience on the Thursday episode (September 29) of The Daily Show when he announced his departure as the show's host.
"I've loved hosting this show, it's been one of my greatest challenges, it's been one of my greatest joys. But after seven years, I feel like it's time," he said. "I realized there's another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages, I miss going to other countries and putting on shows. I miss just being everywhere and doing everything."
However, he revealed he would still stay on the show for the meantime, serving as its host, as the timing of his departure would be later announced.
"I'm really grateful to a network who believed in this random comedian nobody knew on this side of the world," he continued. "I never dreamed that I would be here. I sort of felt like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I came in for a tour of what the previous show was, and then the next thing I know I was handed the keys. All I can say is thank you very much."
