The South African first took over the responsibilities of hosting The Daily Show in 2015 when he replaced Jon Stewart.
Noah indicated that he wanted to spend more time exploring stand-up comedy.
“After 7 years, I feel like it’s time. I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road. Stand-up was done, and when I got back out there again, I realised that there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring,” he said.
“I miss learning other languages, I miss going to other countries and putting on shows,” he added.
Noah showed gratitude and thanked everybody who had been involved in the show over the past seven years.
The South African comedian said that his departure would not be immediate, and didn’t give an exact date.
