South African funnyman Trevor Noah finally debuted as the new host of The Daily Show on Monday, 28 September.

#TrevorDay is finally here for South African audiences!

In his opening monologue, Noah touched on his South African heritage, his predecessor Jon Stewart and why no female or American was chosen as host of The Daily Show.

Part of his monologue reads thus: “I can only assume that this is as strange for you as it is for me. Jon Stewart was more than just a late-night host, he was often our voice, our refuge, and in many ways, our political dad. And it’s weird, because Dad has left. And now it feels like the family has a new step-dad—and he’s black, which is not ideal.”

Acknowledging the audience, Trevor said “And to you, the Daily Show viewers—both new and old, at home or on your phone—thank you for joining us, as we continue the war on bullsh*t.” The "Day Walker" made South Africa proud and masses took to social media to acknowledge that:  

    Trevor's first guest was fellow-comedian, Kevin Hart.

DStv Compact subscribers will be able to view The Daily Show on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) until 02 October at no extra cost.
