Speech of acceptance
“Told you!” “I told you we’d beat John Oliver if he wasn’t in the same group as us,” Noah laughed. “We finished. John Oliver was fired.
The crazy Africans who followed me to this country—David Kibuuka and Joseph Opio—along with my partner in crime, David Meyer—as well as the writers and the team—Roy Wood Jr. from the start, Jordan Klepper—whose flight got canceled—and showrunner Jen Flanz—who was with me through the rough spots. Noah talked.
Noah left The Daily Show in December after seven seasons. In a recent interview while back in South Africa, the comic talked about how hard it was to get used to living in the US.
Noah said that the most difficult thing about working on The Daily Show was how hard it was.
When the show ends, you don’t stop or turn off. It was tough. When I first moved to the US, I worked up to 18 hours a day at its busiest.
Noah also said that fellow comedian Kevin Hart was the first famous person to back him up after other famous people turned down his offer to be on the show.
Last year, Noah went back to South Africa to do a number of comedy shows.
People liked how his tour, even though he now lives in the US, touched on the country’s unique social problems.
Noah’s projected Net Worth is a cool $100 million, thanks to his work on The Daily Show, his best-selling memoir, and his Comedy Shows that sold out all over the world.
