Trevor Noah has really blown up.

The South African comedian, who has made a name for himself internationally, will start his new job as the host of The Daily Show in September. Trevor, who is currently in Mzansi, visited Redi Tlhabi's 702 show on Wednesday morning (3 June) to chat about his new gig, his grandmother, some of the stories that have been reported about him, and a few other things.

Speaking about his new job, he said: "Obviously there's a change, to say there is no change would be a lie. But it's one of those things where now it's a new job, that's what it really is. All my jobs are big jobs... That's what people don't understand, every job I do in my world is a big job."  

He explained further: "If I get on stage in front of 2000 people, that's a big job for me. If I go onto a show where I'm gonna be telling jokes to a few million people, that's a big job for me. It's just that now this is another step in that world of big jobs for me. But obviously I understand the prestige and the position of the show. I appreciate it and I don't take it for granted...

"Sometimes it's funny because people will see you at the top of a ladder and they'll be like 'yo, you're at the top of a ladder' and you're like 'yeah, but I've been climbing this thing for a while'. So I guess for the person climbing it doesn't seem that high because you're taking it one rung at a time, and then when you get there people go 'how did you get there?'. It's lots of little steps that's all it is. But no one would clap for you while you're on the first step."
