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.

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.

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.

On The Daily Show, Rosie Perez returns from Puerto Rico with plenty of words for "that man"

Matt Damon has been forced to comment on Ben Affleck’s back tattoo

Earlier this week, the nation was made painfully aware of the reality of Ben Affleck’s massive back tattoo, which he had previously and understandably claimed was fake.

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…

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…

Roy Wood Jr. and Trevor Noah brainstorm about those Confederate monuments on The Daily Show

If there’s one thing that Donald Trump has truly accomplished (and the coming grand jury is still way out on that one), it’s that his incessant coddling of white supremacists has taken the hazy, eyes-averted embarrassment that many people carry about the existence of Confederate monuments in America and focused it…

Trevor Noah and the Equal Justice Initiative explain how current talk of "Southern heritage" ignores all the dead black people

With all the controversy about Confederate monuments and the chorus of shrilly racist dog whistles about “Southern heritage” emerging from the Trump administration and its supporters, the fact that a different sort of American history continues to be erased from the national discourse is too often drowned out. That’s…

The Daily Show asks transgender vets about the Draft-Dodger-In-Chief’s tweets

Like a lot of people—and all people with human souls—Daily Show host Trevor Noah spent the day trying to come up with the right way to say, “Even for Donald Trump, this is some bullshit,” concerning Ol’ Bone Spurs’ excreted tweets this morning announcing that the brave transgender servicepeople would no longer be…

Trump’s Twitter becomes hilarious, horrifying art at The Daily Show’s Presidential Library

While opening the faux “Presidential Library” dedicated to all the terrible shit Donald Trump has said on Twitter, Trevor Noah obliquely referenced that time he was excoriated for saying terrible shit on Twitter. “I like the Donald J. Trump tweets because he is the first millennial president, and as a millennial I…

Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah talked poison rhetoric and black Trump on The Late Show

In a meeting of late night political comedy hosts, Stephen Colbert had Daily Show anchor Trevor Noah to The Late Show last night, where the two veterans of the satirical trenches swapped Trump notes, and addressed the day’s mass shooting in Alexandria, Virginia. Doing comedy in the face of a mass shooting is, sadly,…
