Trevor Noah took over 'The Daily Show' in 2015.

Comedian Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, brings his stand-up act to the Aronoff Center on Friday, Feb. 1.

Noah, 34, has triumphed in a seemingly impossible task – replacing hugely popular Jon Stewart in 2015 on Comedy Central's flagship show at 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday.

Two years later, Noah won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series. The Daily Show was nominated again this year, but did not win.
