Comedy Central announced Monday morning that Trevor Noah will fill Stewart's seat. Noah joined the Daily Show in 2014 as a contributor. The South African stand-up comic has hosted numerous shows, including his own late night talk show in his native country, Tonight with Trevor Noah.
Noah will replace Stewart later this year.
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!— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) March 30, 2015
