The Daily Show presenter Trevor Noah said on Thursday that his “time is up” and that he would be departing the Comedy Central show.
In a video that was uploaded on Twitter on Thursday, Noah described his seven years as the show’s host as “simply great.” When Jon Stewart departed the program in 2015, the South African comic assumed his position at the desk.
The comedians Roy Wood Jr. and Ronny Chieng were among the coworkers Noah thanked for their assistance, as well as his staff, the sponsors of the program, and the businesses.
He continued by saying that he enjoyed being the show’s host and that it was both one of his “biggest difficulties” and “greatest delights.”
Noah said, “I want to thank you, to you who saw this. “Because, guy, I never imagined I’d be in this situation. I had a “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”-like feeling. I arrived here to take a tour of the last performance, and the next thing I knew, I was given the keys.”
When asked about his decision to leave the show, Noah made it seem as if he had spent the COVID-19 epidemic “two years” at home and “not on the road.”
“I came to the realization that I wanted to continue investigating another aspect of my life once I went back outside. I miss picking up new tongues, “said Noah. “I miss traveling and performing in different nations.”
When he would make his last appearance as the show’s host, Noah remained mum.
“I won’t be going anywhere, so don’t worry. I’ll still pay you whatever I owe you “He laughed.
Comedy Central claimed it has been working with Noah “for a long time to find out how he can keep the tough schedule” in a statement to The New York Times. The host was “working together on future steps,” according to the network, but there was “no schedule” for Noah’s departure.
Insider’s request for comment was not immediately answered by Noah’s representatives.
