On Monday, Comedy Central announced that 31-year-old South African comedian Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart as host of “The Daily Show.”
“The Daily Show” joked:
Noah humbly responded to the announcement.
No-one can replace Jon Stewart. But together with the amazing team at The Daily Show, we will continue to make this the best damn news show!

The reactions, so far, have been overwhelmingly positive.
I know Trevor Noah a bit. Nice guy. I’m sure won’t mind letting me host the Daily Show instead of him.
