Trevor Noah has announced he will be leaving "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central.

Noah has hosted the Emmy Award-winning satirical news show since 2015 but said the COVID-19 pandemic made him reconsider his future and what he wants to do.

He made the announcement in a YouTube video, saying he wants to tour and focus more on stand-up comedy.

Noah — who's from South Africa — was relatively unknown when he was chosen to succeed comedian Jon Stewart as host of the late-night talk show.

The network has yet to say whether it has anyone in mind to replace Noah.
