Trevor Noah is lining up his next projects as he prepares to exit The Daily Show.

The comedian and TV host returns to Netflix in November, with a new stand-up special titled I Wish You Would.

The project marks Noah’s third original comedy special for the streamer after Son of Patricia and Afraid Of The Dark.

Per Netflix, Noah “hilariously shares revelations about learning to speak German, modern communication, and his love for curry” in I Wish You Would.

David Paul Meyer directed the special, which was filmed at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada.

Trevor Noah serves as executive producer alongside Bob Bain, Norm Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt and Sanaz Yamin of Day Zero Productions.

I Wish You Would premieres globally Nov. 22, 2022 on Netflix.

On Sept. 29, Noah announced he’s leaving The Daily Show after seven years, as previously reported.

“I’ve loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh, even when the stories are particularly shitty,” he said on air. “On the worst days, we’ve laughed together, we’ve cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”

The South African comedian said after the pandemic and spending two years in his apartment, he wants to explore other things, travel and perform more stand-up comedy.

His last night hosting the Comedy Central program will be Dec. 8. The show will return from a holiday break on Jan. 17 with a yet-to-be-named host.
