Trevor Noah calls the two-party system "one of the most destructive forces in America"

Trevor Noah’s time as host of The Daily Show has felt distinctly different from Jon Stewart’s for many reasons. One of which is the fact that Noah, as someone born and raised in South Africa, approaches the problems in America from an outsider’s perspective, calling us on our bullshit with his signature incredulity.…

“That is a power base ”: #MeToo founder Tarana Burke tells Trevor Noah survivors are just getting started

On the day when copiously alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein was indicted for rape among other crimes, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah asked Tarana Burke, if such news “brings [her] joy.” Burke, who founded the #MeToo movement to give voice to survivors of sexual violence over a decade ago, explained patiently that…

Trevor Noah had a cameo in Black Panther that people are only just noticing

Here’s something we’ve come to realize of late: There’s always a cameo. If you’re watching a modern big-budget movie, there’s a good chance that some A-lister is hiding on the fringes, whether it be Daniel Craig and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Last Jedi, Kevin Smith in The Force Awakens, Matt Damon in Thor: Ragnarok, …

Terry Crews talks Deadpool 2, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and toxic masculinity on The Daily Show

Human-shaped charm mountain Terry Crews was typically delightful in his sit-down with Trevor Noah on Wednesday’s Daily Show.

Late-night hosts return from hiatus to address the Parkland shooting—and its righteous survivors

Last week a gunman stalked the halls of a high school in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people. Many late-night hosts were on hiatus at the time, meaning they were saved from delivering another round of despairingly de rigeur monologues in which they are forced to process grief—and make comedy—in the wake of a…

Late-night hosts have a memo for Trump, Devin Nunes, and Sean Hannity: Your “bombshell” memo is horseshit

Since it was the start of a new work week, the late night comedy hosts all had a weekend’s worth of Donald Trump’s crap to sift through on Monday. Sure, there was that speech in Cincinnati where Trump said Democrats who dared to not applaud for his typically mendacious State Of The Union address were guilty of “treason

Live Daily and Late Shows break Trump's stomach-churning State Of The Union into more digestible nuggets

Both the Late Show With Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah stayed up late on Tuesday to deliver live breakdowns of Donald Trump’s long, rambling, predictably racist and awful (if obediently on-book) State Of The Union speech. Whether or not attempting to cobble together a show’s worth of jokes on the…

Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards tells Trevor Noah that women are poised to dominate the 2018 elections

Look, it’s hard to stay positive night after night when your job is trying to find the lighter side of a nation under Donald Trump, but, on Thursday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah brought in a stalwart ally in Planned Parenthood and Planned Parenthood Action Fund president Cecile Richards. And, sure, with Donald Trump and…

Late-night hosts respond with appropriate subtlety to President Shithole’s racist comments

You can say this for Donald Trump: He sure is a vulgar, embarrassing old bigot. Oh, and he also continues to keep the late-night comedy hosts on their toes, as he seems inclined to leave his most awful actions and comments to the late afternoons, right before the nightly shows go to tape. (Perhaps he just gets cranky…

The Daily Show and The Opposition will air live after Trump's first State Of The Union

There are any number of reasons that a person might have for looking forward to Donald Trump’s first State Of The Union address on January 30—including the likelihood that it’ll be a disaster or that it’ll give them a good excuse to completely disengage from TV and the internet for a night—but Comedy Central is now…

The Daily Show's Dulcé Sloan and Desi Lydic unveil the feminist anthem "Song For Women 2017 (feat. DJ Mansplain)"

If anyone deserves to take the rest of 2017 off, it’s the hard working men and women of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah. Throwing themselves a one-hour televised farewell party at New York’s Gramercy Theater entitled The Yearly Show, Noah and most of his cast of correspondents all took their final shots at this—by any…

Late night comedy goes after Alabama Republican nightmare Roy Moore like a pedophile piñata 

All you can do is laugh, right? You know, when a U.S. Senate contest comes down to a choice between a Democrat (Doug Jones) whose legal career includes prosecuting the klansmen responsible for the 1963 Birmingham 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, and a twice fired Republican former judge (Roy Moore) who’s a noted…

Trevor Noah doesn’t know if The Daily Show can sway the opposition

The Daily Show’s politics are undeniably left-leaning, but that doesn’t stop host Trevor Noah from attempting to reach across the aisle. But rather than altering the show’s politics, he hopes comedy will be the great unifier. As he explains in the video above, Noah’s unsure if the show’s political commentary will be…

Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, and Seth Meyers react to Monday's Trump-Russia indictments with some cathartic glee

In what looks to be just the start of a late-night comedy feeding frenzy at the news that the first indictments have been handed down in Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, and Seth Meyers all took well-earned, long-delayed pleasure in mocking the crumbling house of Trump on…

Gold Star father Khizr Khan calls for hope and defiance in the face of Trump's bigotry on The Daily Show

While Khizr Khan and Trevor Noah didn’t bring up Donald Trump’s recent attacks on the family of deceased U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson in the broadcast version of their interview on Monday’s Daily Show, they didn’t have to to get Khan’s point across. (In the post-air extended version of the interview, Khan does…
