Trevor Noah, the comedian tapped to replace Jon Stewart as the host of "The Daily Show" beginning September 28, first appeared on the news satire program as a contributor in December 2014.
But his time in the spotlight dates back to years before then — he made his television debut at the age of 18 on a South African soap opera, went on to host numerous television and awards shows and later dropped acting to pursue a career in stand-up, touring around the world.
Noah is known for intrepidly tackling issues of racism and often uses his experiences growing up as a mixed race child during apartheid in South Africa as the basis for his comedy.
With a little over a month left before Noah takes the stage we decided to take a look at who the next "Daily Show" host is through some of his best stand-up comedy and talk show moments. Watch our compilation below:
