UNITED STATES: Comedian Trevor Noah has announced he is standing down as host of The Daily Show.

However, Trevor Noah acknowledged that there was “another aspect of my life that I want to keep on exploring” even if he was “full with an appreciation for the adventure.”

Since replacing Jon Stewart as host of the satirical news and conversation programme in 2015, the 38-year-old has served as the host.

He stated that he will continue to serve as host while the timing of his departure will be announced later.

Trevor Noah’s journey

Before migrating to the US in 2011, Trevor Noah started his career in his native South Africa, where he produced a number of stand-up specials and hosted a late-night chat show.

When he was chosen to take over The Daily Show on the Comedy Central network, he was still relatively unknown, but he has since gained international fame and won multiple television prizes.

After his show on Thursday, Trevor Noah made the surprise announcement, drawing shocked gasps from the studio audience.

He expressed gratitude to the cast and the show’s devoted viewers for “an extraordinary seven years,” adding, “It’s been wild, truly wild.”

“I remember when we first started… so many people didn’t believe in us. Appointing me as host was a crazy bet to make. “I still think it was a crazy choice, this random African,” Trevor Noah said.

“I just find myself filled with gratitude for the journey. It’s been absolutely amazing. It’s something that I never expected,” he added.

After all that has occurred during his tenure as the show’s host, such as Donald Trump’s election as president and the COVID pandemic, he claimed that he has decided that his time is over, but in the most beautiful way

“I’ve loved hosting this show; it’s been one of my greatest challenges, and it’s been one of my greatest joys. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time,” he said.

“I realised 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.”

Trevor Noah said that he never dreamt that he 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 knew I was handed the keys. All I can say is thank you very much.”
