Comedy Central announced a slate of guest hosts for The Daily Show, following longtime host Trevor Noah’s imminent departure on Thursday.
Al Franken, Chelsea Handler, D.L. Hughley, Leslie Jones, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes and Marlon Wayans will guest host The Daily Show beginning January 17, as part of its “next chapter”. Comedy Central added that “Daily Show” correspondents and contributors are also “set to host with additional details to be announced.”
Noah announced his plan to leave The Daily Show in September, and will launch a comedy tour in January. Chris McCarthy, president/CEO of Paramount Media Networks, said in a statement: “As we enter Trevor’s final week, we want to thank him for his many contributions. Trevor redefined the show, as did Jon Stewart before him, and as we look to the future, we are excited to reimagine it yet again with the help of this incredible list of talent and correspondents along with the immensely talented ‘Daily Show’ team.”
“The Daily Show” airs weeknights at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central and is available the following morning on Paramount+.
