Trevor Noah is no longer the host of The Daily Show, but he clearly has a lot of fond memories. In the interview above on The Late Show, he tells Stephen Colbert how much he used to enjoy the people he worked with and the joy he had creating the late night show itself.
He won’t miss the daily grind, though. Noah explains that his days making the show were forever dominated by thoughts about the news. “I remember there was one Met Gala after party I was at,” he says. “You’re at this event, it’s amazing, everyone’s having a good time, you know there’s people dancing, there’s Rihanna, there’s Harry Styles, and I’m in a corner like, ‘Is the filibuster tomorrow? What’s happening tomorrow?'”
To emphasise how stressful the day-to-day was, Noah goes on to compare planning the show to planning a wedding.
“So you’re thinking who are the guests, what are you gonna wear, what’s going to happen, who’s going to be making a toast, what will the speeches be about, what’s everybody eating, who’s sitting where, how’s it all going — and then the wedding happens, and you go, ‘Alright, we’re doing another wedding tomorrow.'”
