Despite the demands of The Daily Show, Noah has found time to write a bestselling book and perform standup around the country (and world). He also has film, TV and digital projects in the works thanks to his production company. Noah also started a podcast in April. As The Hollywood Reporter's Lacey Rose writes in a profile of Noah: "He has made time to assemble a roster of mentors and advisers, from whom he's carefully collected morsels of wisdom. It was Jay Leno, for instance, who told Noah to never stop touring ('Once you lose that muscle,' the former Tonight Show host said, 'you may not be able to get it back') and Chris Rock who advised not to tour too much ('If you want to be a great comedian, you've got to live life, too'). Dave Chappelle told him a lot of people can be funny but few can be interesting ('So don't forget to share who you are and your mind with the audience'), and Jerry Seinfeld said to care a little less about fitting in ('Once you're in, you're too afraid of being kicked out to make jokes'). None was as impactful as British comic Eddie Izzard, however, who was the first to urge Noah to mine his own often unbelievable life story. 'If I were you,' he said, 'that's all I'd be talking about.'"
