Here is a taste of what you can expect from new ‘Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah
With the announcement that South African comedian Trevor Noah will be filling the very large shoes left behind by popular Daily Show host Jon Stewart, here is a sampling of what you can expect.
Although Noah is relatively unknown to American audiences, his rapid-fire delivery on subjects ranging from the American obsession with sports statistics to why U.S. hip-hop stations censor the lyrics of the songs seem universal.
“Why would they do that?” he asks about hip-hop censorship. “Surely everyone listening to a hip-hop station knows what hip-hop is all about. Like, is there somebody who listens to hip-hop that doesn’t like the cussing particularly? Who are the people that made these laws? Who was the person who said, ‘You know what, I just can’t handle the cussing? I can’t handle it. Please, cut that out, but keep the misogyny. Keep that in.’ ”
Noah is expected to take over The Daily Show later this year after Stewart steps down.
