Trevor Noah is a South African television and radio host and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.
Noah began his career as an actor, presenter, and comedian in South Africa. He held several television hosting roles with the South African Broadcasting Corporation, and was the runner-up in their fourth season of Strictly Come Dancing in 2008. From 2010 to 2011, Noah was the creator and host of Tonight with Trevor Noah on M-Net and DStv. His stand-up comedy career attained international success, leading to appearances on American late-night talk shows and British panel shows.
In December 2014, Noah became the Senior International Correspondent for The Daily Show, an American satirical news program. The next year, he was announced as the successor of long-time host Jon Stewart, and has served as host of The Daily Show since 28 September 2015. Although ratings for the show declined following Stewart’s departure, Noah’s tenure has been generally favourably reviewed, attracting particular attention for his interview with young conservative personality Tomi Lahren in late 2016. – Wikipedia
