Trevor Noah has been named as the replacement for John Stewart's "Daily Show"

South African comedian Trevor Noah has made headlines as the new host of American satirical news show "The Daily Show".

New York Times reports that Noah's appointment comes less than two months after flagship host John Stewart announced his retirement on February 10 after a 16-year run with the show.

Noah is currently in Dubai for a leg of a comedy tour and had this to say about succeeding Stewart:

"You don’t believe it for the first few hours,” he began as he spoke to the online publication.

“You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol.” he joked.

The promotion comes after Noah made the first of his three appearances on the Daily Show as an on-air contributor in December 2014.

We're all super excited for Trevor and his new adventure. We wish him all the best. Here are some reactions from the "Daywalker" himself and his fans:
