Trevor Noah is departing “The Daily Show” after seven years.

The comedian, 38, announced during a taping of the long-running Comedy Central show Thursday that he will be leaving the comedic current-events program.

“I remember when we first started … so many people didn’t believe in us. It was a crazy bet to make. I still think it was a crazy choice, this random African,” said Noah, who hails from South Africa. “What a journey it’s been. … It’s been absolutely amazing. It’s something that I never expected.”

He added: “After the seven years, my time is up, but in the most beautiful way, honestly. I’ve loved hosting this show. … But after seven years I feel like it’s time.”

Noah’s announcement earned a standing ovation from the masked studio audience.

A Comedy Central spokesperson said in a statement Thursday that there is no timetable for Noah’s departure and that the network is working with him on next steps.

How to Deal With Rats

Rats have been around with mankind from the beginning of time. We are told that nobody is further away from a rat than six feet, at any given time. I do not believe that is necessarily true, however there are a lot of rats around. Apparently there are 60 species of rats in the world. The smallest one is about four inches long and the biggest one is called a Bosavi woolly rat that weights in, at over three pounds, about the size of a cat.

A Biblical Perspective on the White Mountains Incident

I would like to share with you some thoughts on the White Mountains Incident and what it means to me. The story got me: two acquaintances of mine from Brazil had an almost similar experience in the 60s. Now and then, I reflect on the things that happened to them. I had no idea how commonplace this kind of thing could become. I know that some people don’t believe them for a moment. But I do believe that some stories deserve attention and respect. In this brief article, I can give you only one reason for this.
