The Daily Show with Trevor Noah - Show Summary

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is a half hour satirical news program airing late nights on Comedy Central. The show has been on television since January 1996, which gives it the honor of being the second-longest running show on the network. Between the years 1999 to 2015, the show was hosted by Jon Stewart, who significantly increased the standing of the show due to his fanatical following. Comedy Central’s The Daily Show begins life (post Jon Stewart) as Trevor Noah steps into the enormous void left behind Stewart’s 2015 departure.

The show was created by Madeleine Smithberg and Lizz Winstead. Until 2005, The Daily Show was filmed in NEP Studio 54, after which it moved to NEP Studio 52, where it has remained ever since. The original host of the show was Craig Kilborn, who at the time was the co-anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter; he served until December 17, 1998.

In 1999, when Jon Stewart replaced Kilborn, he altered the entire sentiment of the show. The content came to adopt more of a political bent with a fake news vibe. Now that Noah has taken on the mantle, the show will likely continue its political focus. Noah strengths are his international focus, as he originally comes from South Africa and has been performing as a comedian around the world for several years.

Despite the backlash regarding Noah’s controversial tweets, Comedy Central stood by in support of Noah as Stewart’s successor. Trevor Noah has more critical acclaim abroad than his current status in the United States and the recognition it affords. Noah has already ingratiated himself to Comedy Central viewers as a correspondent on The Daily Show, but now audience members can experience his comedic talents as the actual front man for this new chapter in The Daily Show history, propelled by his fresh international comedic talents. The show has opened up to more of an international audience and world leaders will now be seen more often on the show in place of domestic politics. Noah denied the claims and just attributed it to some comedic jokes that did not get a laugh, but that they still were funny. Comedy Central management did whatever damage control they could and the enlisted the help of Jerry Seinfeld, who included Noah on his show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, to show that he was in fact a friend of the Jews. Jon Stewart's real name is Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz and it would be crazy to think that he would entrust his legacy to an anti-semite.

Should you see The Daily Show with Trevor Noah being taped?

Trevor Noah Headshot
  Before the taping starts, the warm-up comic comes out and pokes fun at the audience with quick and funny insults that are not extremely offensive. Afterwards, Trevor Noah comes out for a quick 10 minute Q&A with audience so they learn more about him. Audience members can experience first-hand Noah’s unique and rare comedic perspective, shaped by his upbringing, where his parents’ interracial relationship, and his subsequent birth were illegal under South Africa’s apartheid law. His wit and relative youth (He is in his low-thirties) make Noah a fresh voice among the landscape of late-night TV show hosts, where the contemporaries are much older and predominantly white American, (Larry Wilmore aside of course). Audience members witness the evolution of one of the up-and-coming young bright comedic stars in the Comedy Central galaxy. The show is located in the same studio as the late, great Stewart’s version of the show, albeit with a $1 million dollar refit that switched around the seating position and improved the dated set. Studio audiences get a great night of free entertainment with a new and different approach to the lighter side of political news and current events that made The Daily Show a beloved piece of American entertainment for the last 16 years.

Trevor Noah Controversy

Upon the announcement that Trevor Noah would be inheriting Jon Stewart's gig on The Daily Show, Noah came under fire from many angles including the New York press and Daily Show fans. It may have been that many were surprised by his selection to be heir apparent, when so many other viable candidates existed in the field, but there was a mad dash to see who exactly Trevor Noah was and it was during this process that many of his past questionable actions came to light. Noah faced a backlash after people dug up older tweets from 2011 and 2012, in which people called them anti-Semitic and sexist in nature.
