This is an absolutely fun segment by Trevor Noah (he gets pretty close to the average Indian accent without sounding like Apu from ‘The Simpsons’), heir to the always-amazing Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show‘. Sad to see Stewart go — end of an era and all that. But, thrilled to see what Noah is going to bring to the show as it’s bound to be a unique and different sensibility while keeping with Stewart’s ethos, in a way — as evident from this clip (and many others floating about the interwebs). Enjoy.
