NEW YORK - Trevor Noah’s first executive-produced show for Comedy Central has debuted in the United States (US).

Noah is one of the producers behind The Opposition with Jordan Klepper which stars Klepper in a new series that airs after the Daily Show and will parody the so-called "Alt-right" in American media, which is behind many of the fake news claims.

Klepper says Noah has been supportive of his comedy since the South African first came onto the _Daily Show _as a contributor, the two will still interact through Klepper’s new show too.

The show is expected to make its way to South Africa, although a date hasn’t been set yet.
