‘The Daily Show’ reveals Chelsea Handler, Leslie Jones and John Leguizamo will guest host
The end of an era is rapidly approaching Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” and the network has announced at least the first phase of plans for what’s to come.
Following the imminent departure of host Trevor Noah, the network shared this week that comedy legends including Al Franken, Chelsea Handler, DL Hughley, Leslie Jones, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes and Marlon Wayans will fill in hosting the late-night show starting on Tuesday, January 17, as part of the “next chapter.”
Comedy Central added that correspondents and contributors to the “Daily Show” are also “set to host with additional details yet to be announced.”
“As we enter Trevor’s last week, we want to thank him for his many contributions,” said Chris McCarthy, president/CEO of Paramount Media Networks, according to the network statement.
Trevor redefined the show, as did Jon Stewart before him, and as we look to the future, we’re excited to reimagine it using this incredible roster of talent and correspondents along with the hugely talented ‘Daily Show’ team. ”
Noah’s last show airs this Thursday. The network has not yet announced whether guest hosts will run indefinitely or if a permanent, individual host will be named soon.
“The Daily Show” airs weekdays at 11:00 PM ET/PT on Comedy Central and is available the following morning on Paramount+.
