‘What an honour’ — Trevor Noah wins big at The Webby Awards

Trevor Noah and The Daily Show won big at the 27th Annual Webby Awards.
The ceremony, hosted by Roy Wood Jr, saw The Daily Show walking away with seven awards.

The South African-born comedian was awarded Best Web Personality/Host for his Between the Scenes segment, were he often spoke about South Africa and his family.

After hanging up his hat as host of The Daily Show seven months ago, he said the move was to spend more time on other aspects of life.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Trevor said he would miss “the people, the culture and the vibe” of The Daily Show.

He likened it to planning a wedding every day, with no honeymoon.

“So, I miss the discipline. I miss the joy that came from cracking that nut every day, but I don’t miss the grind,” he added.

Trevor said he now chose when to consume the news and enjoyed that he did not have to have an opinion as soon as something happened.

He has been spending time with loved ones since his break, including white river rafting with friends in Costa Rica. He also has an extensive stand-up comedy world tour in the coming months, including a trip to South Africa for shows in August and September.

The former The Daily Show host has won various awards, including a Primetime Emmy Award from 11 nominations.

Trevor has also hosted the Grammy Award shows three times in a row.
