‘Daily Show’ Anchor Trevor Noah on Crowded Time Slot: ‘We’re the Only Late-Night Show With a Host of Color’

‘Daily Show’ Anchor Trevor Noah on Crowded Time Slot: ‘We’re the Only Late-Night Show With a Host of Color’
The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah argues he stands apart in an increasingly crowded late-night space.

“We’re the only late-night show with a host of color,” Noah told TheWrap. “We are the only late-night show that has an international voice that speaks to politics,” added the South Africa native.

Noah’s tenure at the “Daily Show” has come during a time when the late-night space has undergone numerous changes. When his predecessor, Jon Stewart, was the host, late-night was dominated by the likes of Jay Leno, David Letterman and Conan O’Brien, with Jimmy Kimmel joining the fray in 2003.

‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Gears Up for Midterm Elections – and More
When Trevor Noah isn’t hosting Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” he often travels to parts of the country less associated with the production of a late-night television program. Those journeys, he says, often have a big effect on the production of his show.

Like Bill Maher and Jay Leno before him, Noah uses his off time to deliver stand-up to different audiences around the United States – and believes the effort helps build an audience of viewers for “Daily” who might not otherwise think to watch it. “I’m getting into people’s lives so they can come in to ‘The Daily Show’ fold.

Dolly Parton Always Wears Long Sleeves to Hide Her Beautiful Butterfly Tattoos

You'll probably never get a good look at them, but Dolly Parton apparently has tattoos all over her body. The 72-year-old country singer always wears long sleeves, thus hiding at least two tattoos on her arm: a butterfly and an angel. And other celebs say they've seen tattoos on her breasts, as well! In 1996, talk show host Jay Leno spied Dolly's arm tattoos when she wore a dress with shoulder cut-outs on The Tonight Show. She told him she had a "little butterfly and a little angel, [her] guardian angel." (You can get a glimpse of that butterfly here.) Since then, she has neither said much about her tattoos nor worn many arm-baring outfits, but she has at least explained why she has gotten so much ink. Rainy days are just an excuse for pretty umbrellas. Don't let it slow you down! #MondayMotivation A post shared by Dolly Parton (@dollyparton) on

Jay Leno might be 68 years old, but he's driving like he's 25 in spirit ... and maybe about 90 or so on the road.  The former 'Tonight Show' host was spotted revving up on the I-5 freeway in Burbank, CA Sunday in what appears to be a 1930s-inspired whip.

Conan O’Brien’s TBS Show Will Move to Half-Hour Format in 2019

Conan O’Brien hopes fans will see more of his comedy even as he produces less of his flagship late-night TV show on TBS starting in 2019.

The comedian will move his “Conan,” which has been on TBS since November of 2010, to what he called a “leaner” half-hour format focused more on comedy. As a result, the show will tamp down on some of the usual late-night trappings such as multiple celebrity interviews. O’Brien said the new concept will leave him with more time to develop comedic routines for the TV show, but also to produce more content for a

Virtually every big name in comedy, from Richard Pryor to Jay Leno to Roseanne Barr, had to first pass Mitzi Shore’s sniff test.

A giant in the world of standup, tributes from comedians started streaming in on Wednesday after news of Shore’s death at the age of 87 broke.

Shore’s son, Pauly Shore, was among the first to pay tribute. The actor-comedian, known for roles in ’90s-era comedies including “Encino Man,” said, “My heart lays heavy,” when he shared the news of Shore’s passing on Twitter.

Later in the day, Jim Carrey — who came up through Shore’s Comedy Store in Hollywood early in his career — offered his sentiments, which included a piece of his original art, on Twitter:

The great Mitzi Shore, owner of the famous Comedy Store, has passed away. No words can express the gratitude I have for her. We met in 1979. She opened the door to my dreams! If she loved you, you did well. If she didn’t, you did something else. I will love her forever. ;^) pic.twitter.com/lBNXnW0mEr
