Noah, who will make his hosting debut on The Daily Show on 28 September, has told GQ about the two years he spent breaking into the American market and says it was a lonely time.

"You're people-sick. You're human-being-sick. You just want someone in your life. You want a friend. You want to know you exist."

While everyone waits in anticipation, Noah says viewers can expect only a slight 'facelift' to the show.

"I'm a big fan of The Daily Show, and that's what it's still gonna be. It's still gonna be The Daily Show. It's the same way, when Fallon took over from Leno, it's still The Tonight Show."
