Back in March “Comedy Central” announced that Noah would be Stewart’s replacement. After 16 years of Stewart making media propaganda laughable he delivered his last show that aired Aug. 6 and left us all teary-eyed. Noah started out his first show paying tribute to his predecessor naming him our “political dad.”
The South-African comedian wasted no time getting into the jokes making light humor of no woman wanting the job and him being the new black step-dad “which isn’t ideal.”
“Before we start I just want to say a few things. This is surreal for me. I’m not going to lie, growing up in the dusty streets of South Africa I never dreamed that one day I would have, well, two things really: an indoor toilet and a job as host of The Daily Show. And now I have both. I’m quite comfortable with one of them,” Noah joked with the audience.
“Also, why didn’t they get an American host? Again, Comedy Central tried and they declined. Once more, a job Americans rejected is now being done by an immigrant,” he went on to say.
Noah concluded his segment with thanking the audience for joining as the “war on bulls**t” continues.
