Trevor Noah Bows Out Of ‘The Daily Show’ With Heart-Felt Tribute To Black Women

South African comedian, Trevor Noah has ended his seven-year stint as the host of Comedy Central’s satirical news report, The Daily Show.

Naija News reports Trevor first made the announcement that he would be stepping down as the host of the show in September.

The 38-year-old ended his 7-year run hosting the Comedy Central series by paying tribute to all the Black women in his life who took the time “to inform me, to educate me, to argue with me.”

Noah also expressed his gratitude to members of the audience and the people who have been watching the show since its inception.

He also gave a “special shout-out” to “black women”, adding that they “shaped, nourished and taught” him.

“I’m grateful to you, every single one of you,” he said.

“I’m so grateful. I remember when we started the show, we couldn’t get enough people to fill an audience.

“This is random, for some, but special shout-out to Black women. I’ve often been credited with having these grand ideas. People are like, Trevor, you’re so smart.’

“I’m like, ‘Who do you think teaches me? Who do you think has shaped me, nourished me and formed me?

“I always tell people, if you truly want to learn about America, talk to Black women. Unlike everybody else, Black women can’t afford to f**k and find out.”

The Born A Crime author took over the reins of the politically-themed show in 2015. He hosted for seven seasons before his departure.

While his replacement has not been confirmed, a series of celebrity guest hosts will anchor the show at the beginning of the next season in January 2023.
