Trevor Noah is leaving 'The Daily Show'

Source: CNN

(CNN)"The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah has announced he will step away from the anchor desk.

In a video statement shared on Twitter Thursday, Noah said that after seven years as host of the Comedy Central satirical news program, his "time is up."

"It's been absolutely amazing. It's something that I never expected," Noah said of his experience hosting the show. "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 the seven years, my time is up."

6. Trevor is moving on up!

Good on you Trevor. You've done an amazing job and since replacing Jon Stewart, you've surprised us all. I've really enjoyed his take on the issues and he helps show Americans how far they still have to go. All the best Trevor. Well deserved, for sure. Thank you!

8. Why leave a show to do stand up? He can do both!

Jay Leno did the Tonight Show and stand up gigs.

9. I think he would be more worldwide than Jay Leno was. It seems

every stand up special I've watched of his, has been in different countries/locations, mainly outside the US. I may be wrong, it's been awhile.
He will be greatly missed.

10. Besides what dewsgirl said, Leno was a bit of a workaholic.

I could easily see not wanting what are essentially two time-demanding jobs, when you don't need the money, and you'd rather have more leisure time for family or other interests.

15. Jay Leno Fans are mostly in the US. Trevor Noah has international

following and wants to do appearances outside the US also.

Like, "I heard his replacement would either be Carrot Top or Marie Osmond"

19. They can't get an American to host it

Comedy Central tried, and those people declined, and so once more a job Americans rejected was performed by an immigrant.

Good luck, Trevor! You will be missed. What a rough job you were given, to follow Jon Stewart. But you did it man, you did it!

18. The grind of The Daily Show has kinda held Trevor Noah back.

As this door closes, I suspect many doors are opening, beckoning him.

24. Wow, it's been seven years since he started?

Who the hell turned on time compression? Anyway, I don't think he was as good as Jon Stewart, but he did an alright job from what I've seen. Gonna be tough job for someone to fill those shoes. Not as hard as it was for Trevor, but still a tough one.
