Phil Posted March 30, 2015 Share Posted March 30, 2015 The New York Times reports that 31-year-old South African comedian Trevor Noah is your next Daily Show host. Noah first appeared on the show in December to talk about police brutality in America and South Africa. He's contributed on-air only twice since then. Here's his December debut, where he jokes, "I never thought I'd be more afraid of police in America than in South Africa. It kind of makes me a little nostalgic for the old days, back home." Noah, who grew up in Soweto, is the son of a black Xhosa mother and a white Swiss father, per the Times. He has said that his parents' relationship was illegal under apartheid at the time of his birth. Comedy Central says Noah will take over for Jon Stewart later this year. (Stewart announced he was leaving the show in February.) http://morningafter.gawker.com/comedian-trevor-noah-will-succeed-jon-stewart-as-host-o-1694484412?utm_campaign=socialflow_gawker_facebook&utm_source=gawker_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
