Johannesburg - Trevor Noah caused quite a stir recently when a picture of himself with the other American late night hosts was labelled as "an all-boys club."

Trevor is set to take his place as host on The Daily Show later this month. (More on that here)

Trevor took his place amongst the late night comedy royalty in a feature in Vanity Fair, posing next to the likes of Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert, Conan O'Brien, James Corden, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Larry Wilmore and Jimmy Fallon.

But critics moaned about the lack of women in the feature, calling it sexist.

Trevor has hit out at the claims, saying that comedy is far from sexist, and that "women are more powerful than men in comedy right now."

"If you look at the top comedy actors, Melissa McCarthy by far is killing most of the numbers of other actors. You look at Amy Schumer right now—I would argue that there is no more preeminent voice in comedy," he told Newsweek recently.

Either way, we still think Trev looks dashing in his navy blue suit! Slay Trev, slay!
