Comedy Central announced yesterday that the 31-year-old would debut as the popular show’s host on 28 September.

Noah’s been taking advantage of some down-time recently: attending the MET Gala and mingling with Hollywood heavyweights such as Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and John Legend.

The funny man is also finishing off the last leg of his comedy tour – with a few shows scheduled in South Africa next week.
