Trevor Noah postures for a picture at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., Wednesday, July 29, 2015. Noah said politics and the media will certainly stay targets of the program he will inherit from Jon Stewart.

Wednesday, July 29, 2015|5:48 p.m.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.– Inbound “Daily Program” host Trevor Noah said politics and the media will stay targets of the program however the viewpoint will certainly be distinctively his.

“The show still has its voice. It’s just I’m at the helm taking things in a somewhat various direction, but still aiming to get to the very same end location,” Noah stated Wednesday during a Q&A session with TELEVISION critics.

Outgoing host Jon Stewart is a middle-aged Jewish man from New Jersey, Noah stated, while he’s a 31-year-old half-black, half-white South African man who’s spent about five years in America as he’s pursued his funny profession.

“Take a look at concerns in America right now, state practically racial inequality, Jon and I come from totally different viewpoints,” he said. “Jon would have to understand; I myself come from a totally various location.”

The show is keeping its senior producing personnel, Comedy Central has stated and which channel executive Kent Alterman declared at the Tv Critics Association session. The emphasis on stability makes sense: “Daily Program” with Stewart has actually been a foundation of the channel’s success.

Noah said he’ll be searching for affirmation from Stewart that he’s doing right by the program. Stewart leaves Aug. 6 and Noah takes control of Sept. 28.

“The biggest pressure … is measuring up to the expectations that Jon has of me. Jon believes in me,” he stated. There will certainly be comparisons made in between them, he acknowledged, but it’s not his intent to instantly match what Stewart has constructed over a period of years.

“I have a structure set up by a splendidly smart, amusing man,” he said.

While the program’s focus on domestic issues will remain, consisting of how the media addresses them, Noah stated he will widen the long-time emphasis on Fox News Channel since the sources of news in the online era are much more substantial.

He likewise plans to address global issues that are resonating in America, stated Noah, who said he speaks seven languages.

The comedian was favored by fans and critics when he performed his stand-up act Tuesday night at a theater in Santa Monica, California. He put the focus on subjects consisting of black deaths at the hands of law enforcement rather than politics.

Throughout Wednesday’s Q&A, he was self-assured and relaxed as he fielded concerns that included the backlash to jokes that the comedian had tweeted several years back, including ones that buffooned Jews and ladies.

Noah politely dismissed the tweets as a few among many, recommending they were evaluated harshly in part since Americans were unfamiliar with him and his comical point of view. Prior to coming to the United States, he ‘d established a worldwide fan base.

“Thankfully, Funny Central hasn’t limited me to 140 characters on the show, so I need to be able to (speak) in a better, well-formed way,” he said.

When Noah was asked why he seemed so imperturbable, he traced it back to a difficult early life that included a family beset by domestic violence and a native nation battling to break free from apartheid. Both his family and country are much better off now, he said.

“Maybe I have actually been tainted by hope and optimism. Maybe that’s why I’m unflappable. I’m mixed now only in my blood but my life,” he stated. There are issues that get him “riled up,” he included, but he likes to believe before he acts.
