Trevor Noah makes his debut on The Daily Show

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!

1st promo for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah released

It’s a known fact now that Trevor Noah is the new host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. He is the first South African to achieve such, and I’m extremely proud of this incredible progression in his career. I think he’ll bring a lot to the table and he’s perfectly capable of holding down the hosting duties. So may the countdown begin!

Obviously the hype will start to build now and so with that in mind, the channel has just released its first promo for the show, which kicks off later this year. Check it out:

Can’t wait to see him in action.
