The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah had some pretty harsh, but true statements to make recently when talking about the tragic Orlando shootings. 49 people were gunned down in a club in the early hours of Sunday, by a man claiming his allegiance to ISIS. There are several other claims that the man himself was gay, but nothing has been proven as yet. One thing is for sure, the level of hate (religious, sexual and/or issues related to race) prevalent in the world is beyond scary.
So while Americans come to terms with what is being coined as the worst mass shooting in its history, there’s clearly a lot of work that needs to be done in that country when it comes to gun control. One thing is for sure, the level of hate (religious, sexual and/or issues related to race) prevalent in the world is beyond scary. Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones left behind as a result of yet another senseless act of terror.
Trevor Noah made history last night (a couple of hours ago, this morning or wherever you are really) when he took over the hosting duties of the hugely popular, The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Looking poised, calm and collected, Noah took the role in his stride and made an impressive debut, if I say so myself. Some of the American news outlets aren’t impressed, but that was to be expected. haters gonna hate, but for me, I couldn’t be prouder.
If you’re in SA, you’ll get to see the full episode at 9 pm tonight, but if you can’t wait that long, have a look at the first eleven minutes above 😉
Love it, well done Trevor!

If there’s one thing that could trump a trip to NYC, it would be seeing South African comedian Trevor Noah making history in the city I love so much. And Comedy Central is giving a lucky South African, together with his/her partner the opportunity of a lifetime… to see Noah make his debut on one of the most revered shows on television – and as the host of it nogal. On the 28th of September, Noah takes over The Daily Show from the legendary Jon Stewart, and if you’re the chosen one (sit down, it’ll be me haha) you’ll get to witness this incredibly proud and fantastic moment for Noah, his legion of fans and of course the nation.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will kick off on Tuesday the 29th and it’ll air every Tuesday through Friday on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) at 21:00 CAT, just 24 hours after the USA.
