The 29th of September will see broadcast history being made by comedian Trevor Noah, who’s broken into Hollywood by joining the Daily Show, replacing the renowned Jon Stewart. The countdown has officially begun to the Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
With role models such as Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Dave Chappelle, the comedian plans on making his own mark in the comedic world, and explains the show going forward, “It’ll be like a face-lift. I’m a big fan of The Daily Show, and that’s what it’s still gonna be. It’s still gonna be The Daily Show. It’s the same way, when Fallon took over from Leno, it’s still The Tonight Show.”
He continues, “It’s a very different world going from South African comedy to the US, but at the end of the day, comedy is comedy, you just have to find the right rhythm to speak to people; that’s what really changes, the rhythm from one city or country to the next. It is a jump, but it’s a jump you have to get used to if you are a comedian.”
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will air Tuesdays to Fridays on Comedy Central, at 21h00 from Tuesday 29 September, just 24 hours after the live US premiere. Comedy Central will be running, full catch-up episodes of The Daily Show from 30 September online at www.comedycentralafrica.com.
