After weeks of deliberation The Daily Show officially has a new host. Comedy Central released a press release Monday morning stating that relatively a new correspondent on The Daily Show, will be taking over the chair from Jon Stewart when he leaves.
Noah Trevor has only been a Daily Show correspondent since December 2014 and he’s only made three appearances on the show to date. At 31 the South Africa native is going to be one of the youngest members of the late-night-host club. No word on when Noah is going to take over The Daily Show.
In the meantime you can watch all of Noah’s appearances on The Daily Show below.
Some celebrities are reacting to the news via Twitter. Chris Rock seems excited.

And new host Trevor Noah wants you to know that he’s not trying to replace the man, the myth, the legend Jon Stewart.
No-one can replace Jon Stewart. But together with the amazing team at The Daily Show, we will continue to make this the best damn news show!
