Oh no! Trevor Noah has undergone an emergency appendectomy. Is ‘The Daily Show’ host doing okay, post-surgery? Here is what we know.
Trevor Noah, 31, had to undergo an emergency appendectomy on the morning of Nov. 4. Trevor, who has hosted The Daily Show since Sept. 28, is currently recovering in the hospital, and is expected to make a full recovery. However, Comedy Central has confirmed that he will unfortunately miss the evening’s episode. When is he expected to return to the faux-news desk? We have the info.
Comedy Central released a statement, informing the public of the scary situation, along with the good news that Trevor is doing well following the emergency procedure. You can read the statement in full below:
“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. 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.”
Trevor took over for the satirical news show’s longtime host, Jon Stewart, at the end of September, after he was announced as the replacement way back in March. Thus far, audiences have seemed to warm up just fine to the South African comedian.
Recently, Trevor had audiences howling with laughter at the expense of none other than rapper, Drake, 29, and his now infamous dance moves. “Huge news coming out of Canada last night,” Trevor said at the start of his show on Oct. 20. “Do you know how hard we’ve worked to be called black? And then you do this to us, Drake! You’re going to get our black status revoked.”
We are sending Trevor all the positive energy in the world and are wishing him a speedy recovery!
