In a recent live panel, Trevor Noah, current host of ‘The Daily Show’, opened up about taking over Jon Stewart’s place.
At the time, Noah asked Stewart if he was being pushed out. But that wasn’t the case. Instead, Stewart, after 15 years, with all that was going on in the world, just couldn’t do it anymore.
Stewart told Noah, “I’m leaving because I’m tired. I’m tired of being angry. I’m angry all the time. I don’t find any of this funny. I do not know how to make it funny right now, and I don’t think the host of the show, I don’t think the show deserves a host who does not feel that it is funny.”
Stewarts advise to his successor: “Relish the fact that you can make jokes about these things because there will come a day when you are too angry to laugh.”
