July 29, 2015 - accent chair
The Daily Show is unequivocally going to change when Trevor Noah takes over a Comedy Central array this fall. One large switch off a bat: Noah says he’ll concentration reduction on Jon Stewart’s favorite source of outrage, Fox News.
“The Daily Show was formed on an rising 24 hour news cycle, that’s all it was,” Noah told reporters during a Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press debate on Wednesday. “That’s what inspired The Daily Show. Now we demeanour during news and it’s changed. It’s no longer predicated around 24 hour news. There are so many opposite choices. Half of it is online now. Now you’ve got a Gawkers, a BuzzFeeds. The approach people are sketch their news is soundbites and headlines and click-bait links has altered everything. The biggest plea is going to be an sparkling one I’m certain is how are we going to move all of that together looking during it from a bigger lens as against to only going after one source—which was historically Fox News.”
Here are more revelations from a panel:
— The set will change: “We’re changing a sets a little bit,” Noah said. “But we still wish it to be famous as The Daily Show.”
— The viewpoint will change: “We’re still traffic with the same issues, it’s only a opposite angle we’re looking during things from—and it’s my angle, really. I’m holding things in a somewhat opposite direction, but to a same endpoint.” Noah afterwards ran down a biographical differences between himself (describing himself as a 31-year-old half-black, half-white South African male who immigrated to a United States in 2011) and Stewart (as a 52-year-old Jewish male who grew adult in New Jersey). “The approach we demeanour during a same story will be totally different,” he said. “We have opposite entrance to opposite jokes, opposite sides, opposite sensitivities … the many critical thing is a place that we come from.”
— More mimicry: Noah speaks 7 languages and is training more, and impersonating accents is partial of his stand-up act already. “I have an affinity for picking adult on accents and tones,” he said. “But we don’t consider somebody’s accent is inherently funny.” A contributor brought adult how Stewart recently done headlines after a former author from The Daily Show recounted a wrtiers room arugment over Stewart’s Herman Cain impression, and wondered either doing impressions of accents is unequivocally a correct idea. “The story wasn’t about a accent itself, a story was framed around an occurrence in a office,” Noah countered. “The occurrence with Herman Cain wasn’t a bad fun in particular.” Noah combined that a writers room is ostensible to be a place where creatives quarrel about content. “That’s a whole indicate of carrying a good essay team. You’re perplexing to find a best approach to tell a best joke. What happened with Jon is accurately what a writers’ room is for. We wish to get to a indicate where we’re unequivocally ardent for a subject, since when we get a quarrel on shade we’ve already had a quarrel [behind a scenes].”
— About those tweets: Noah was asked about Twitter history that was slammed when as unresponsive when he was announced as The Daily Show’s new host. “I don’t essay to be offensive,” he said. “But we can never control what people find is descent or not. Any fun can be seen as offensive. When people get to know you, and when we know a person, we know a context of a joke. Luckily, Comedy Central hasn’t singular me to 140 characters on a show, so I should be means to [better articulate context].”
— About being selected by Stewart: “The biggest vigour is vital adult to a expectations that Jon has for me,” he said. “Jon believes in me … for years we’ve been talking. I never dreamed I’d be sitting in this chair. I guess he knew something about me that I didn’t know during the time. There’s an measureless pressure, personally. But it’s about a uncover first, it’s not about me.”
At a tip of Noah’s panel, Comedy Central also suggested a uncover will keep Stewart’s 5 executive producers.
