And Jon Made Noah and Saw That It Was Good
March 30, 2015  | By Linda Donovan
 
Umm...who? I'm sure that's what a lot of you said this morning when Trevor Noah was announced as Jon Stewart's replacement for The Daily Show. You probably quickly Googled his name and, if you're a Daily Show fan, said, "Oh, that guy! He's good!" He is good and no stranger to hosting; Tonight with Trevor Noah was a late night talk show in Noah's native country of South Africa. But for the uninitiated, or for those who need a refresher, here is one of Noah's Daily Show appearances. In this clip he addresses the U.S.'s desire to "hire" chess players to compete for America. The new Daily Show host believes Americans can't possibly want more. After all, as he says, we already have a bounty of Dakotas: "You've got...North, South, Fanning, Johnson. Leave some Dakota for the rest of us!" While I'll miss Jon Stewart, I'm looking forward to the Trevor Noah era. Yes, this guy is good. This guy is very good. -- Linda Donovan
