“I would love to talk to him about his views,” Noah, 31, tells me.
“I would love to know if he is being 100 percent serious. I would love to know if he is trying to be controversial. I would like to know about the things behind what he is saying. I would love to talk to the man. That would be a very interesting conversation.”
The South African comic — who takes over the program in late September — admits he would approach an interview with the controversial billionaire differently than his predecessor, Jon Stewart.
“I don’t claim to have the 16 years of experience Jon has, so the way that I would do it, would be in a different way,” he says. “But still hoping to get to the same place, which would be the truth in a comedic way.”
THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH debuts September 28 on Comedy Central.
