Trevor Noah sent shockwaves through “The Daily Show” audience Thursday night (September 29) when he announced his time was up after seven years.
I found myself thinking throughout the time of everything we’ve gone through.
The Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey, more pandemic, and I realize that after seven years, my time is up.
Trevor eluded to wanting to pursue more standup comedy opportunities as the reason for his departure.
I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road, and when I got back out there,
I realized there’s another part of my life out there that I want to carry on exploring.
I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows.
Trevor didn’t give a definitive date on when his last show will be, but he promised that he wouldn’t just disappear.
Don’t worry, I’m not disappearing.
If I owe you money, I’ll still pay you.
Former host Jon Stewart passed “The Daily Show” baton to Trevor Noah in 2015, after hosting the show for 16 years.
As a standup comedian from South Africa, Trevor had to quickly learn how to appeal to “The Daily Show “audience.
During his seven years at “The Daily Show,” he’s won numerous NAACP awards, and he’s been nominated for 11 Emmy awards, winning in 2017 for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.

Is Trevor Noah Dating Dua Lipa?
Ironically, Trevor announced he’s leaving “The Daily Show” a day after he was spotted in New York City on a date night kissing and hugging Dua Lipa.
Reportedly, Trevor and Dua were seen enjoying an intimate dinner at Miss Lily’s, a Jamaican restaurant in the East village.
According to an onlooker, ‘They quietly sat away from everyone else at the restaurant. It was clear they were into each other and sat close together throughout the meal. They left together and walked, stopping for long embraces and on the second kiss with hugs.”
We wish Trevor Noah and Dua Lipa all the best in their personal lives and their careers.
