Well it looks like Nellie Andreeva is just gonna have to buy a lifetime supply of White Out this year, because TV just got BLACKER. We’ve all been on the edge of our seats, in anticipation of WHO had big enough feet to fill Jon Stewart’s shoes. And today, we know for sure that Trevor Noah has some pretty big feet.
The South African comedian (which means he’s reeealllly Black, by the way) made his debut to the Daily Show as a contributor last December, according to BBC. His first appearance got REALLY real when he said on the air: “I never thought I’d be more afraid of police in America than in South Africa.”
In response to the big news, Noah told the NY Times:
“You don’t believe it for the first few hours,” he said. “You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol.”
Bravo kiddo! Though I’m sure we are all going to miss Jon, something tells me Trevor’s appointment will be very well received!
