On Thursday, Comedy Central announced that they would renew Trevor Noah’s contract through 2022, keeping the 33-year-old comedian at the helm of “The Daily Show” for at least another five years, which includes producer and hosting duties for year-end specials.

“It’s really exciting to renew this contract for either five more years,” said Noah. “Or until Kim Jong Un annihilates us all — whichever one comes first.”

Despite a rough start nearly two years ago, Noah has since found a groove and the viewership numbers reflect that, as August was his most-watched month ever.

Noah recently took home his first Emmy for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series alongside the “Daily Show” team for their “Between the Scenes” segment.
