Comedy Central just announced that Daily Show correspondent Trevor Noah is going to take over for Jon Stewart when the veteran host leaves later this year.

(Remember this guy?)

And people are thrilled. Especially other comedians.

Why are they thrilled?

Because Trevor Noah is freaking hilarious.

(He brings all this smoke with him, too).

Noah hasn't been on "The Daily Show" for very long, but he has been a comedian for a very long time — in both South Africa and the United States.

Here's one of his classic bits. It's hilarious, heartbreaking, hilarious again, heartbreaking again, and then hilarious again.

It's great is what I'm getting at.

We can't wait. And neither can he.
