‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Has Emergency Appendectomy

“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah will have the night off as he recuperates from an emergency appendectomy, Comedy Central said Wednesday in a statement.

The comedian is expected to be back at his desk for an original episode to be broadcast Thursday evening, the Viacom-owned network said. Comedy Central will air a repeat program this evening.

Trevor Noah underwent an emergency appendectomy early this morning. We’re happy to report the procedure went well and he is currently recuperating from the surgery,” the network said in the statement. “As a result, ‘The Daily Show’ will air an encore tonight. We expect he and the show will be back with an original episode tomorrow.”

Noah’s tenure on the program began September 28. Comedy Central has been touting him in ads that present him as the new face of a reliable institution. Comedy Central has aired “The Daily Show” since July 21, 1996.  Noah is the third host of the program, succeeding Jon Stewart, who ended a long tenure in August, and Craig Kilborn, who was the face of the series from July of 1996 to December of 1998.
