Trevor Noah has revealed when he will be signing off from 'The Daily Show' for the last time. The 38-year-old shocked viewers in September when he announced that he will be leaving after seven years

The South African told his fans that his "time is up" and he is ready to get back into doing what he loves most - stand-up comedy. He revealed the COVID-19 pandemic helped him make the decision. 

"We have laughed together, we have cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time... I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road. Stand-up was done, and when I got back out there again, I realised that there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring," he said at the time.

No date for his departure had been set at the time.

Comedy Central has now revealed that Trevor's last day on the show will take place on Thursday, December 8. 

"Noah has moved 'The Daily Show' seamlessly from insightful, hilarious satire to serious, provocative conversations, meeting society’s moments of unrest and uncertainty with clarity and conviction. Whether it was tackling presidential campaigns, police violence, and systemic racism or navigating a global pandemic, he has entertained and enlightened audiences through his unique voice and perspective," the network said in a statement. 

The show will take a break in December and return on 17 January 2023. Chris McCarthy, President & CEO, Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios, described Trevor as an "incredible talent who has left an indelible mark" on the show.

The show has won several awards under his leadership. Trevor, who is a writer and executive producer, won his first Emmy Award in 2017.  He also beat hosts such as Ellen DeGeneres to be crowned 'Best Host' at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Trevor reportedly has an estimated net worth of more than $100 million (R1.8-billion). According to Forbes, he earned a whopping $28-million (R430-million at the time) in 2019 - making him the fourth highest-paid comedian in the world. He earned most of the money from his stand-up shows. 

He might be saying goodbye to 'The Daily Show', but Trevor is booked and busy on the stand-up front in 2023. His 'Back To Abnormal' world tour is running until April.

Trevor will also be coming to South Africa next year. The 'Trevor Noah Live in South Africa' tour will kick off in Cape Town on August 31. The 12-show tour will also make stops in Durban and Pretoria.
