The late-night talk show and satirical news programme have employed the South African comedian Noah, political pundit, and television host for seven years. On Thursday, September 29, the week of his seventh anniversary, the 38-year-old confessed he feels his “time is up.”
Noah’s time is up
In a video that was shared on Twitter by The Daily Show account, Noah expressed his ‘overwhelming’ gratitude for the opportunity to work on the show since 2015 after succeeding Jon Stewart. He continued, “So many people contributed to the success of our project. I also want to thank the crowd for an incredible seven years. It has been crazy. Now he feels that his time is up.
“I recall when we initially began. So many people didn’t think we were real. Making such a wager was insane. It was still a stupid decision in my opinion. What a voyage it has been, too. “All of you who come to support us and all of you who watch every day I experienced a deep sense of thanksgiving for the journey. It’s been absolutely wonderful and unlike anything I could have imagined. Although in the “most lovely way,” Noah acknowledged that his “time is up.”
The daily show
He said it was both “one of his greatest challenges” and “one of [his] greatest delights,” adding that he “loved presenting the show. “Together, we have both cried and laughed. “But I believe the time has come after seven years,” Noah threw in.
Although he made no mention of the reason for his decision to leave the show, Noah did mention that he wants to “continue exploring another aspect of life.”
I miss expanding my linguistic horizons, travelling, and performing abroad. “He said he exists everywhere and performs everything. Noah said, “I’m not very good at saying goodbye. I’m not simply going away, so don’t worry.
I’m really appreciative to the network for having faith in this unknown comedian on the other side of the globe.
My intention is to express my gratitude. To those of you who watch this as well as those who visit and occasionally do both. Because, man, I never imagined I’d be in this situation. Without you, I would not have been able to complete the task and I would not have desired to do so. “
Comedy Central said in a statement to Variety: “We’re collaborating on the next steps because there is no set date for his departure.”
As we look ahead, we’re enthusiastic about the next chapter in the 25+ year history of ‘The Daily Show,’ as it continues to redefine culture through witty and biting social commentary, aiding audiences in making sense of the world around them, “the statement reads.
Before migrating to the US in 2011, Noah started his career in his native South Africa, where he produced a number of stand-up specials and hosted a late-night chat show.
Comedy central network
When he was chosen to take over the Daily Show on the Comedy Central network, he was still relatively unknown, but he has since gained international fame and won multiple television prizes.
At the conclusion of his show on Thursday, Noah revealed the surprise, drawing shocked gasps from the studio audience.
He expressed gratitude to the cast and the show’s devoted viewers for “an extraordinary seven years,” adding, “It’s been wild, truly wild.” Noah told to his fans that he feels his time is up.
“When we first started,” he recalled, “so many people didn’t believe in us.” It was a reckless bet to make to choose me to be the host. This random African still seems like a weird choice in my opinion.
I just find myself overwhelmed with thanks for the trip. It’s been very incredible. I never anticipated that happening.
After all that has occurred during his tenure as the show’s host, such as Donald Trump’s election as president and the COVID pandemic, he claimed that he has decided that his “time is over, but in the most beautiful way.”
This show’s hosting has been one of my biggest challenges and joys, and I have loved every minute of it. But I feel like now time is up “he remarked.
“I came to the realisation that there is another aspect of my life I want to continue exploring. I miss expanding my linguistic horizons, travelling, and performing abroad. I miss simply moving about and doing things. I’m really appreciative to the network for having faith in this unknown comedian on the other side of the globe.
“I never imagined I would be in this situation. I had a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-type feeling. I had just arrived for a tour of the last concert when I was suddenly given the keys.
