From calling out Kanye, to addressing the racists abusing Twitter under Elon Musk’s watch, Trevor Noah knew how to be the topic of conversation in 2022. Not only did the South African comedian host the 64th Grammy Awards and the White House Correspondents Dinner, he also wrapped a 7-year-run of The Daily Show (he had succeeded long time host Jon Stewart). “Maybe this comes with not being raised in America, but I believe that everything should end,” Noah explained to The Hollywood Reporter in November. “A lot of American business and American media is just like, ‘Keep it going as long as possible.’ I think it’s healthy for things to end when they’re still in a good place. I want to leave before I’m burnt out, because there are many other things I’d like to do.” Despite the Born a Crime author ending his tenure on the show, he has a comedy tour starting next year, projects being developed under his Zero Day Productions banner, and is currently working on a Broadway musical. Noah’s sharp wit transcends multiple mediums, and his expansive career proves this out. The world needs more of his candor. Honestly, we cannot wait to see what the future has in store for him.
