Trevor Noah Announces First ‘Daily Show’ Guests & Kevin Hart Kicks Off This Party
With only days to go until Trevor Noah debuts as The Daily Show 's new host, we finally learned which celebrities will be stopping by. The first Daily Show guests include Kevin Hart and Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie. However, it looks like Noah has a lot in store for the show's first week. USA Today reports that the guest lineup has Hart, Christie, and Bumble CEO and founder Whitney Wolfe. The first musical guest will be Ryan Adams, who just released his cover album of Taylor Swift's 1989 .
Back in March, it was announced that Noah will take over for Jon Stewart as the host of The Daily Show. “You don’t believe it for the first few hours,” Noah told New York Times of his new gig. "You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol." In a statement, Stewart endorsed Noah as the new host, saying (quote via the New York Times), "I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor. He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with.”
There are a lot of changes expected with Noah as the new host, but this is also an exciting time for the show. With the 2016 presidential election a little more than a year away, Noah will have his work cut out for him.
Back in August, fans got their first glimpse at Noah as the Daily Show host. You can watch that preview in the video above and tune in for his debut on Monday, Sept. 28 at 11PM ET on Comedy Central.
