SA-born comedian and host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah has officially announced the show will be taking a short break while they figure out how to create a new “in-person” Daily Show experience in the near future.

Trevor took to his social media platforms to make the announcement, saying the break was necessary for him and his team to figure out a way to recreate the show to fit the new normal.

“You may have heard and you may have not heard that The Daily Show is gonna be taking a break over the summer,” Trevor announced.

“In the meantime, there’ll still be things happening on the The Daily Show feeds online. New videos, new posts, everything Facebook, YouTube, Snap Chat and TikTok. We gonna be doing all of that stuff and you can follow us on all our social platforms to see what is  happening. But as for me, from the TV show side of things, we are going to be taking a little break. Why? Well, because it’s time to get outside.” Trevor said.
