trevor noah, the daily show, the daily show with trevor noah, comedy centralJon Stewart is set to pass the "Daily Show" torch to South African comedian Trevor Noah when the venerable host departs the program later this summer. Now, we know exactly when Trevor is taking over the gig.

Comedy Central announced this week that "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" is set to debut on September 28. Stewart is vacating his post on August 6.

The network also released the first promo for the show, with Noah taking a spin in Stewart's chair, and trying out his hosting chops. But it looks like Stewart may have a hard time letting go of his post.

Check out the goofy clip below, and get excited for the Noah era (which will apparently be "new and sexy," according to the promo). The 31-year-old comedian -- who was officially announced as Stewart's replacement back in March -- has already made a name for himself in his native South Africa (where he hosted his own late-night talk show) and has impressed in his handful of "Daily Show" appearances to date. We're eager to see what else he has up his sleeve.
