Trevor Noah will launch a U.S. comedy tour after ending his run on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Comedy Central said.
The tour, Trevor’s Noah Comedy Club Tour: New York, will kick off in February 2015, the network said Saturday. Noah will follow the tour with a stand-up special in December 2015.
Stewart announced his retirement from The Daily Show on Friday morning, and the Comedy Central hit that had Noah as a correspondent announced that Noah would also depart the late-night comedy program.
“Jon and I have agreed to end our affiliation with The Daily Show, which will allow me the time to pursue my personal life,” Noah said in the announcement. “I will continue working out of my home and doing some other things. I will continue to host my daily shows on The Daily Show website and Facebook, and I will continue to write comedy in my personal column.”
The news means a lot of Noah will be free while he deals with the transition.
The Daily Show last aired on Sept. 10, and Noah has been a regular correspondent for the program. He co-hosted Daily Show Live with Jon Stewart in 2014, his second stint hosting the show.
The Comedy Central show had a ratings boost thanks to Noah: His last full-length Comedy Central show drew 7.3 million viewers, up 3 million from Noah’s debut on The Daily Show in November 2012.
