Many don’t trust the media, but they do trust the guy sitting behind the desk on Comedy Central’s nightly news program. The Daily Show has been a comedy institution since the mid-1990s, and is still going strong.
While the show really became popular with Jon Stewart at the helm, South African comedian Trevor Noah took over in 2015 and provided a fresh face and fresh voice to the hilarious news show. Each episode takes a deep dive into the biggest headlines in the country, and Noah takes no prisoners, whether he’s taking on goofy newsmakers or the President. And just for good measure, there’s also hilarious interviews with big-name politicians, authors, pundits, and celebrities.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “If [Noah’s] not quite the proxy for Stewart — and his progressive rage — that most viewers want right now, that’s probably OK too. Stewart wasn’t Stewart when he began either. It just might be fun to see who Noah eventually becomes.” –Verne Gay, Newsday
- “Good news: The Daily Show is back, and it’s almost exactly as you remember it. Almost.” –Ross Miller, The Verge
