Trevor Noah walked away with 7 Webby Awards this week for The Daily Show. An ecstatic Trevor Noah took to Twitter and said it is an honor to be recognized. The 27th annual Webby Awards were held at New York City’s Cipriani Wall Street.

Trevor Noah left The Daily Show as a host after years. He admitted on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that he will not miss the grind and compared it to planning a wedding.

“I do miss the discipline,” said Trevor to Stephen. “I do miss the joy that came from cracking that nut every single day, but I don’t miss the grind,” he continued.

“The thing I missed most, and it happened mostly in the pandemic, and I know I’m not alone in this, I missed people. I missed two years of people’s lives. I missed two years of eating food in South Africa. I missed two years of traveling with my family and friends.

“I remember there was one Met Gala after-party I was at. You’re at this event, it’s amazing everyone’s having a good time, you know there’s people dancing, there’s Rihanna, there’s Harry Styles and I’m in a corner like, ‘Is the filibuster tomorrow? What’s happening tomorrow?

“Making a daily Television show in many ways is like planning for a wedding. So, you’re thinking, ‘Who are the guests? What are you going to wear? What’s going to happen? Who’s going to be making a toast, and what will the speeches be about? What’s everybody eating, who’s sitting where? How’s it all going — and then the wedding happens, and then you go, ‘Alright, we’re doing another wedding tomorrow,’” Noah said.

Taking to Instagram, Trevor reflected on what it was like hosting for the second time in a row and thanked viewers for tuning in.
