Trevor Noah's 'Daily Show' has a start date

Posted on

Comedy Central

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is almost here—and now we know precisely when it’ll happen. The comedian will take over Jon Stewart’s hosting duties on The Daily Show on September 28, Comedy Central announced Thursday.

That leaves exactly four months for Noah to get ready, and what better way to practice hosting than to get comfortable in Stewart’s seat? In the clip accompanying the announcement, Noah tests his intros, presents his “new and sexy” show, and karate chops his way across the stage—before being interrupted by Stewart himself. (After all, Stewart’s last show isn’t until August 6.)
