How Trevor Noah Finally Got Comfortable In The Daily Show Host Chair

Not long after Trevor Noah stepped into Jon Stewart’s shoes as host of The Daily Show, his new bosses experienced a panicked, albeit short, crisis of faith in the show’s new star. Not because of the rife criticism that followed their choice, or the scandal over old and somewhat problematic tweets that came back to haunt him. Nope. Their doubts, says the show’s executive producer, Steve Bodow, were because of Noah’s insistence during the run-up to last year’s American election that Donald Trump would become the 45th president of the United States. It’s one of the first things Bodow remembers when talking about the very beginning of Noah’s two-year-run on the show. He was “swearing up and down that Donald Trump was going to win. I thought that maybe we’re in a little bit of trouble, bu...
