The end of an era is almost upon us on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” and the network has announced at least the first phase of plans for what’s to come next.
Following the impending departure of host Trevor Noah, the network shared this week that comedy legends including Al Franken, Chelsea Handler, DL Hughley, Leslie Jones, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes and Marlon Wayans, will host the late night show starting Tuesday, January 17 as part of their “next chapter.”
Comedy Central added that “Daily Show” correspondents and contributors are also “set to host with additional details to be announced.”
“As we enter Trevor’s final week, we want to thank him for his many contributions,” said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of Paramount Media Networks, according to the network’s statement.
Trevor redefined the show, as Jon Stewart did before him, and as we look to the future, we’re excited to re-imagine it once again with the help of this incredible roster of talent and correspondents along with the immensely talented team at ‘Daily. Show’. ”
Noah’s final show will air this Thursday. The network has yet to announce whether the guest hosts will rotate indefinitely or a permanent individual host will be named soon.
“The Daily Show” airs weekdays at 11:00 pm ET/PT on Comedy Central and is available the next morning on Paramount+.
