Famous Lib Comedy Host Calls It Quits

Trevor Noah has aired his final episode of the Daily Show. The once-funny comedian revealed he owed it all to black women.

The 38-year-old comedian dedicated some time on Thursday’s broadcast to praising the black women who, he believes, have been instrumental in developing his thoughts. After seven years, he hosted his final episode of the popular Comedy Central series. 

Owes It All To Black Women

He said that people frequently ascribed their brilliant ideas to him. Then, he inquired as to who people believed had been his primary educators, mentors, and supporters. 

He noted if someone wants to know about America, they should talk to black women because they have a particular perspective. 

He said this is due to black women, unlike their counterparts elsewhere, simply do not have the financial resources to “f**k around and find out.” 

He remarked the black community has an innate understanding of the difficulty of adversity, particularly in the United States, but also elsewhere. He went on to say that black women, in particular, have experience with the consequences of things going wrong. 

Noah elaborated by saying that he owes his presence in this country to black women. 

The audience was also acknowledged by Noah, who reflected on the early days of his “Daily Show” hosting gig when he had trouble drawing a crowd. 

He scanned the masked onlookers and stated, “When I look at this today, I don’t take anything for granted.” He acknowledged the empty chair behind every full one because he understands how much it means to the people who have come to observe what he does. 

After taking up the host role in 2015, Noah remarked that he had “three clear aims.” 

His plans included ensuring Hillary Clinton’s election, stopping a worldwide epidemic, and befriending Kanye West. Save to say he failed on all counts. 

During a taping on September 29th, Noah said he would be leaving the program after seven years. 

The End of His Journey

In the beginning, he remarked, many people didn’t believe in them and he recalls that. That was an insane wager to make. According to him, he still considers it an unwise decision. 

Most wonderfully, Noah said, his time is over after seven years. The experience of presenting this concert, he stated, was one of his favorites. Now, after seven years (and not being as hilarious), he thinks the timing is right. 

Craig Kilborn hosted “The Daily Show” from 1996 to 1998; then Jon Stewart took over in 1999 and stayed until 2015. From 2015 on, Noah hosted the show. 

After presenting the late-night talk show since 2015, James Corden recently revealed he will be retiring in the spring of 2023, five months before Noah made his announcement. 

TBS stated in July that, after seven seasons, they will be canceling “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.” When Warner Bros. and Discovery merged, several high-ranking employees left in the wake of the subsequent corporate reorganization.

In the end, it is about time “The Daily Show” came to an end. Trevor used to be one of the funniest guys out there, but his sheer hypocrisy and agenda ruined it all.
