New York — Comedy Central says Sept. 28 will be opening night for Trevor Noah as the new host of “The Daily Show.”

The 31-year-old South African comedian will be stepping into the job held by Jon Stewart since 1999.

The previously announced departure date for Stewart is Aug. 6. The parody newscast will then go on hiatus until the arrival of Noah, whose selection to take over was announced by the network in March.
