He’s joining the movement. Trevor Noah helped keep The Daily Show afloat post Jon Stewart’s departure, when he took the reigns in the fall of 2015.
He announced his departure from the show September of 2022, and fans have been wondering what his next move might be.
It was announced that Spotify has scooped him up for an undisclosed amount, but his content won’t be exclusive with the streaming giant, as Variety reports.
Looking at the description, it’s clear to see the show will be pretty generic.
“Signature humor and razor-sharp wit with his global perspective to deliver a unique take on the hottest and most captivating topics of the moment. With interviews with some of the most influential and interesting people around the world,” said Spotify in a press release.
Some people strike gold in that format. Think Joe Rogan. But that’s because he’s a different type of thinker. Noah has been reliably left, although he has occasionally surprised his audience.
At the White House Correspondents Dinner, which he hosted, he did take a dig at MSNBC and mainstream media saying, “By the way, MSNBC can I just say you guys are doing great work you know. I love watching your shows you know, when Trump was in office your shows were all about how bad he was. And now that Biden’s in office, your shows are all about how bad Trump was. Consistency is important.”
