Trevor Noah: Daily Show host tries to learn all 2016 presidential candidates

Posted on

Comedy Central

Trevor Noah is starting his gig as host of the The Daily Show at an exciting and dynamic time — right in the thick of the 2016 presidential campaign season. (Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, CNN airs the second GOP debate.)

The South African knows that he needs to get up to speed on the American system very quickly, which is why he turns to Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper for a crash course on all the candidates. It may be harder than he thought.

Check it out above.

Noah’s first show airs Sept. 28 at 11 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
