Cast supports Noah ahead of 'Daily Show' debut
Writer Jordan Klepper says he & the rest of the team are excited for the new chapter under Trevor Noah.
NEW YORK - The writers and comedians who make up the TV series The Daily Show say they're looking forward to having Trevor Noah play host.
Noah slips into the seat previously occupied by Jon Stewart and the first episode of the new season will air in the United States tonight.
Writer Jordan Klepper says he and the rest of the team are excited for the new chapter under Noah.
"We all know Trevor, we have worked with him before he got the job. The dude has ice in his veins, he is a pro."
He says Trevor has kept a lot of what worked for Jon Stewart but has been open to new ideas.
"Trevor encouraged us to throw out ideas; things that you want to do, things that you have not been able to do."
The show airs in South Africa on Comedy Central tomorrow night.
