Trevor Noah to begin hosting The Daily Show on September 28.

Trevor Noah, the South Africa-born comedian recruited to replace Jon Stewart at the helm of Comedy Central’s influential “fake news” program “The Daily Show,” will be officially taking of the job on September 28. Relatively unknown to American audiences, the 31-year-old biracial funnyman was inundated with bad press earlier this year when some of his past tweets deemed sexist and anti-Semitic were unearthed in the wake of the breaking news that he would be filling Stewart’s shoes. “To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didn’t land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian,” Noah tweeted in response to the backlash.

In a promo clip released by Comedy Central on Thursday, Noah is seen cautiously approaching Stewart’s empty desk but then rapidly making himself at home. In the clip accompanying the announcement, Noah tests his intros, presents his “new and sexy” show, and karate chops his way across the stage—before being interrupted by Stewart himself. (After all, Stewart’s last show isn’t until August 6.) The 52-year-old, who won numerous awards and widespread critical acclaim during his tenure as host, has alluded to a desire to continue working on outside interests, such as film directing, once he leaves the show. “It’s not like I thought the show wasn’t working any more, or that I didn’t know how to do it.
