He added that so many people didn't believe in them when they started as he was from Africa and had to fill Jon Stewart's big shoes.

"I realised that after the seven years, my time is up in a most beautiful way. I loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh. It's time."

Trevor Noah shared that part of the reason for leaving the show is that he wants to go on tour and continue doing stand-up comedy, adding that he misses learning visiting other countries and learning new languages.

Peeps took to The Daily Show's comment section and shared mixed reactions to his exit. Some people claimed he wasn't funny while his true fans defended him.

"Definitely. He was never going to fill Stewart’s shoes. No one was. Nonetheless, he did a great job of maintaining the shows integrity."

@VelaphiM3 commented:

"Good on him for leaving, the only reason The Daily Show was relevant to the actual world, unlike American 'world' series anything. Let the Americans laugh themselves into irrelevance since they looking for jokes. They are becoming Jokes if not already."

@Esq_Kizangila said:

"Trevor Noah was super hilarious and still is! Reading the comments from "some" people claiming he wasn't funny and that they haven't watched for seven pray tell, how did you find him not funny by not watching at all."

"Noooooo! Love Trevor Noah."

@AMWeigold added:

"So you have enough money out of the American industrial military media complex and are buying an island in the Bahamas? Good on ya Trevor. Occasionally you have amused me and I’m an Aussie scientist so I’m a very hard sell. Live life and enjoy it."
