A star-studded lineup of comedy greats will sit behind The Daily Show desk following Trevor Noah's departure.
Comedy Central announced today that the anchor chair would be filled by a series of guest hosts to kick off the show's next chapter in January. Al Franken, Chelsea Handler, D. L. Hughley, Leslie Jones, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and Marlon Wayans will all lend their talents to the iconic series in 2023, as well as Daily Show correspondents and contributors.
"As we enter Trevor's final week, we want to thank him for his many contributions,“ said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO Paramount Media Networks. "Trevor redefined the show, as did Jon Stewart before him, and as we look to the future, we are excited to reimagine it yet again with the help of this incredible list of talent and correspondents along with the immensely talented Daily Show team."
Noah surprised viewers in September when he announced he would be departing the show after a seven-year run. His last day as host of The Daily Show is December 8.
A permanent replacement for Noah has not been announced yet.
