Comedy Central announced Thursday that it has renewed The Daily Show host Trevor Noah's contract through 2022. Noah is just a couple weeks away from his two-year anniversary as the host of Comedy Central's flagship late-night show, which was previously helmed by Jon Stewart for 16 years. Noah will remain the show's anchor, as well as a writer and executive producer, and he will also produce and host Comedy Central's annual year-end specials. Comedy Central President Kent Alterman praised Noah for finding "his voice in the show," which Alterman described as "incisive and funny." "It's really exciting to renew this contract for either five more years or until Kim Jong Un annihilates us all — whichever one comes first," Noah said in a statement.
