Trevor Noah to Host 'Daily Show': Hollywood Reacts
Said Chris Rock: "Thank you, President Obama."
Hollywood is buzzing about Comedy Central's news that Trevor Noah is taking over The Daily Show following Jon Stewart's exit.
The South African comedian, who joined the Comedy Central staple as a senior international correspondent in December, will be filling the late-night slot at just 31 years old.
His premiere date will be announced at a later time.
Noah tweeted his thoughts on Monday morning, just after the announcement:
No-one can replace Jon Stewart. But together with the amazing team at The Daily Show, we will continue to make this the best damn news show!— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) March 30, 2015
