‘Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah silenced by voice issue
Fans of “The Daily Show” got to see Trevor Noah host Tuesday night’s Comedy Central broadcast. But they didn’t get to hear him. The reason: Noah has lost his voice and is under doctor’s orders not to utter a word.
The show began as usual, with the theme song playing and the audience cheering as the South African-born comedian walked onto the set and sat at his desk. But when the camera pointed at the desk, the TV audience saw comedian Mike Acosta there.
Speaking for Noah, Acosta told the audience that, indeed, the show “was a little different” in that Noah was ordered not to speak – or risk needing surgery. He didn’t elaborate on what caused the vocal problem or how long Noah will be unable to speak.
