The 31-year-old South African comedian, who became a correspondent on The Daily Show in December, was announced as Stewart's successor in March.

Noah is set to take his place behind the anchor desk for the first time on Sept. 28.

Shortly after he was announced as Stewart’s replacement, Noah found himself embroiled in controversy surrounding a number of past jokes the comic made on Twitter that some critics found sexist or racially insensitive.
