Trevor Noah took to Instagram to take a moment and celebrate the fifth year of his hosting gig at The Daily Show.
The South African comedian posted two pictures of him hosting, one of when he first started and another from more recently. He expressed gratitude in his caption as he thanked people who had been with him since he started this part of his career.
Trevor took over from Jon Stewart as host of the current affairs comedy show in 2015. Stewart had helmed the show himself for just over 16 years.

The Daily Show's comedic political commentary is very in line with the stand-up routines that Mzansi was used to him doing before he moved over to the States. Trevor's bits were always topical and his imitations of political figures had fans in hysterics.
The topics of discussion he does now are a little different but do come with a sizeable paycheck, Forbes reported in 2019 that Trevor's earnings from stand-up, The Daily Show and other ventures made him worth a whole $28 million, making him the fourth richest comic at the time.
The New York Times reported on Trevor having extended his contract with the show's network, Comedy Central, back when it happened in 2017. The contract was for five more years which means The Daily Show will keep its South African host until at least 2022.
Trevor's personal life has also had some media attention recently, as E! News reported that he is currently dating American actress Minka Kelly.
In other Trevor-related news, Briefly.co.za reported on the comedian hanging out with legend of the profession, Dave Chappelle.
Trevor shared a snap on Instagram that had been taken at an outdoor event that both he and Dave performed in, with a caption about how much he'll treasure the memories made from the time.
Chappelle is a well-known comic who is widely regarded as a legend in the comedy industry, particularly in America. Performing and then hanging with him would certainly constitute a couple of career and personal goals being achieved.
Trevor being able to do both is just further proof that The Daily Show host really has managed to take his career right to the top.
