Trevor Noah has just rocked cable news and news itself … he’s leaving his gig on Comedy Central.
Trevor made the announcement Thursday, telling the audience his 7-year tenure is coming to an end … and he made the announcement on his 7-year anniversary.
A Comedy Central source tells TMZ … his decision has to do with his schedule, which is hardcore crazy … and it’s just too much of a grind for him to do a daily show.
Comedy Central says, “We are grateful to Trevor for our amazing partnership over the past seven years. As we look ahead, we’re excited for the next chapter in the 25+ year history of ‘The Daily Show.'”
It’s unclear when Trevor will leave the show … our Comedy Central source says Trevor and the CC team are working together on “a timeline for his departure.”
TN has hosted “The Daily Show” since 2015, taking over for longtime host Jon Stewart on the satirical news program.
During his time as host, Trevor won a Primetime Emmy Award … and was nominated for a bunch of other awards.
In 2017, Trevor extended his contract with Comedy Central through 2022 … and now he’s leaving altogether.
It will be interesting to see who Comedy Central tabs as the next ‘Daily Show’ host … but one thing is for sure, they will have some big shoes to fill.
Trevor’s sure to have other opportunities … he’s also hosted the Grammy Awards and the White House Correspondents Dinner, appeared in movies and produced a ton of content.
