Trevor Noah: “We’re going to be taking a little break”

"It’s time to go outside," says comedian from US late night show.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is going onto hiatus until September but flagging a return with a new look and feel.

In a message to fans he said, “As for me, on the TV show, we’re going to be taking a little break. Why? Because it’s time to go outside. It’s been a crazy time we’ve spent together and when we started it was going to be 21 days [inside]. Then within a few months, we were here [in his house], stuck together.

“Every single month we carried on, never knowing when the thing was going to end because we were never really warned when the thing was going to begin. During that time, we found new ways to do things, we found new ways to make a show, we found new ways to communicate with an audience and we found new ways to live as human beings. Now, as the future comes, I wanted to take a moment to think about what that new will be. I don’t know if the world will go back to normal tomorrow, but I know I’m striving for a certain sense of normalcy, but I don’t know what that will be. I do know it will be shaped by what I’ve experienced during this time,” he added.

“I’m going to take a bit of time to figure out what the new show is going to be.”

But he assured, “I definitely will be coming back and hopefully I will see you when I return.”

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs in Australia on 10 Shake.

  1. Would be good if it was a permanant hiatus…the show has gone downhill ever since Jon Stewart left and Noah turned it into his own personal soapbox. He is so far left it’s not funny (literally) and the Biden administration would be loving the free passes they get.

  2. His quarantine show took on its own style with its YouTube vlog style cutaways which don’t work as an in studio form, so it will be interesting to see how it comes back and embraces the old and new styles of show.

    Same situation for James Corden, whose format change of embracing the whole production team as on-air contributors has been a great format improvement and one I hope retains somehow when their studio audiences eventually return.
