Watch: Trevor Noah Steps into the Limelight in 'The Daily Show' Teaser


READ MORE: Who is Trevor Noah, and Why Did Comedy Central Hire Him as the New Host of ‘The Daily Show’?

With the recent departure of Jon Stewart, the question on everyone’s mind is what can we expect from his successor? The show must go on, but those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Comedy Central announced in March that Trevor Noah will be taking the throne as the new host, beginning the new season on September 28,2015.

If you weren’t excited before, the teaser might change your mind, as Trevor Noah embarks on an epic walk to his new desk in suiting slow motion. With the necessary boldness that the show requires, he uses Kanye West’s “Power” as his walkout song. Noah has plenty of material to work with, considering the presidential campaign trail starting to heat up; many people are stuck in the dark having lost their main source of news. The news must be read, for a world without a daily dosage of political satire is not much of a world at all. Watch the video above to see the official (promotional) introduction of Trevor Noah.
