As the anticipation for the premiere of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah grows, the network has decided to give fans a sneak peak at the line-up of guests for week one of the show’s new season.
Joining Noah to kick off the post-Jon Stewart era will be actor and comedian Kevin Hart. Other guests for the week include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, musician Ryan Adams and Bumble app creator and CEO Whitney Wolfe.
Though the show will undoubtedly have a different energy with the changing of the guard, the substance will still remain the same as a majority of the producers and writers from Stewart’s tenure has remained with the show.
Perhaps one of the biggest differences will be the social media aspect. A team of digital media execs were brought in to oversee the new media angle to keep things fresh.
“We have to expand our view,” Noah said. “Sometimes, the story is made and breaks on Twitter, and we have to find a way to react to that. We have to find a way to consume and disseminate the information from Twitter, which is not an easy thing to do, because the show is used to presenting video materials back to a video audience.”
In addition to his hosting duties, Noah will serve as an executive producer of the show along with Steve Bodow, Jen Flanz, Tim Greenberg, Jill Katz and Adam Lowitt
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah debuts Monday, September 28th on Comedy Central at 11 p.m. est
