Cape Town – 29 September has been declared unofficial “Trevor Noah Day”, as the nation gets behind the South African comedian who is set to make US broadcasting history.

With less than two weeks to go, the countdown has begun to Noah’s highly-anticipated debut on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central.

South Africans can catch Noah’s first episode on Tuesday 29 September at 21:00 on DStv channel 122.

It’s a gigantic move for Noah, as he steps into the shoes of acclaimed Daily Show alumnus Jon Stewart, who left the show in August after 16 years at the helm.

To celebrate the upcoming debut DStv and Comedy Central are opening the channel to DStv Compact customers for the first week of broadcast (28 September to 2 October).
