Here is Trevor on David Letterman from 2013:

Mr. Noah joined 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' in 2014 as a contributor. He made his U.S. television debut in 2012 on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and has also appeared on 'Late Show with David Letterman,' becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show.

'It’s an honor to follow Jon Stewart. He and the team at ‘The Daily Show’ have created an incredible show whose impact is felt all over the world,' said Noah. 'In my brief time with the show they’ve made me feel so welcome. I’m excited to get started and work with such a fantastic group of people.'

Jon Stewart comments:

'I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor. He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with…In fact, I may rejoin as a correspondent just to be a part of it!!!'
