[ # ] Trevor Noah is the new host of The Daily Show
March 30th, 2015 under Comedy Central, Trevor Noah


Comedy Central has yet to make it official, but The New York Times is reporting that Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart as the host of The Daily Show later this year.
Are you going, “Who is he?” The South African comedian made his debut on the show back in December. Since then he has made only 2 more appearances. You might say, that Comedy Central is taking a huge risk by hiring an unknown to take the job. Actually, you can totally say it. You know, it is going to piss off the veterans who have worked on the show for years. I am sure even Larry Wilmore is going, WTF? He gets the second hour and this newbie gets the prime show. Can’t blame him if he was pissed about it.
While his newness can be an issue for fans, I think the bigger problem is going to come as soon as he starts. A big emphasis of The Daily Show is American Politics. That means he is going to have to start learning everything he can in the next few months or he will be screwed when he starts because, at that time, we are a year away from picking a new President of the United States. I’ve lived here my whole life, and I still have no clue what goes on during the election. So he has work cut out for him.
And so does Comedy Central. Hopefully they will do a better job than CBS did with James Corden when it comes to getting the word out about the virtually unknown host.
What do you think of the pick?

UPDATE: Comedy Central just made it official.
