Trevor Noah to take over as new ‘The Daily Show’ host
The Daily show has named Trevor Noah as its new host. Noah, a South African native was born out of a prohibited relationship between a White father and Black mother in Apartheid era South Africa. His rise to taking over of the biggest shows in the US Television is truly spectacular to say the least.
He knows various ethnic languages which he uses in his comedy routine. Noah is already a household name in South Africa where the news of his new job was greeted with much cheers. According to Evert Van der Veer, the head of Comedy Central Africa, Noah’s success is a matter of National Pride. The political parties have also congratulated Noah on the event.
Noah joined the small comedy scene in South Africa in 2007. His 2009 DVD, “The Daywalker” became the country’s biggest comedy hit. He also hosted a popular TV show.
One of Noah’s favourites is his parody of President Zuma, whose manner of speech he parodies.
Noah’s international break came in 2012 when he appeared on the “Tonight Show” by Jay Leno.
Thereafter he starred in “Trevor Noah: African American”, a TV Special about the life of an African in America.
Next, Noah is due for 15 performances at the Teatroat Montecasino in Johannesburg between May 29th and June 28th.
