New York - South African comedian Trevor Noah will take over as host of The Daily Show on 28 September as the successor to widely acclaimed American TV anchor Jon Stewart, the program said Thursday.It will be a baptism of fire for what is an extraordinary promotion for the 31-year-old Noah, who is relatively unknown in the United States.He has appeared only a handful of times on the show as a contributor since last year but has a big following online and in his homeland."The Daily Show" announced the 28 September date by posting on Twitter to its more than 3.4 million followers a short video of the comedian horsing around on set promising a "new and sexy" show."Late night will NEVER BE THE SAME. Or maybe it will. Watch to find out," it said.The video clip shows Noah, in a suit and tie, practising "welcome to The Daily Show" and easing himself into the host's swivel chair, as a silent Stewart looms behind.
Stewart hosts his last show on August 6 after leading the widely acclaimed late-night satire for the last 16 years, turning it into an influential source of news and views for younger Americans.
