South African TV host, Trevor Noah has announced his exit as host of The Daily Show, seven years after he took over the reins of the programme.

Many of his audience gasped in disbelief when Noah revealed this after his performance on Thursday night.

The 34-year-old entertainer extended his gratitude to his team, staff, and audience for their support, particularly early in the program when he was still somewhat unknown.

He said, “I remember when we first started, so many people didn’t believe in us. It was a crazy bet to make. I still think it was a crazy choice, this random African.

“I just find myself filled with gratitude for the journey. It’s been absolutely amazing. It’s something that I never expected.

“I realise that after seven years, my time is up, but in the most beautiful way.

“I’ve loved hosting this show. It’s been one of my greatest challenges, it’s been one of my greatest joys. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”

The son of Patricia, in a tweet by The Daily Show, expressed gratitude to Comedy Central for giving him an opportunity and said he has other areas of his life he wants to “carry on exploring.”

He added, “I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows. I miss just being everywhere and doing everything.

“I’m really grateful to a network who believed in this random comedian nobody knew on this side of the world.

“I never dreamed that I would be here. I sort of felt like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I came in for a tour of what the previous show was, and then the next thing I know I was handed the keys. All I can say is thank you very much.”
