Trevor Noah has enjoyed a “liberating” year. The 36-year-old star thinks the coronavirus pandemic has “stripped away a lot of the bull****” and he’s embraced the chance to speak frankly and candidly to his viewers on ‘The Daily Show’.

He said: “For me, this has been one of the most liberating years mentally and emotionally, because it freed me from a lot of the paradigms and anchors that I had created for myself.

“For me, the coronavirus, if you look at it objectively, has stripped away a lot of the bullsh***…

“My instinct as a person has always been to try to translate what people are saying to each other. What I’ve learned in America is people don’t like the complexity and the messiness of nuance.

“What I’m doing on the show is, I’m just gonna speak my truth and appeal to fellow human beings and say, ‘Yo, man. A lot of things that we’re gonna deal with in the world are messy and complicated.

“For many countries around the world, I think the idea has been ‘[Coronavirus] is real, but how do we deal with it?’ In America, from the get-go, it was, ‘Either it’s bulls*** or it’s very real.’ ‘Wait, what?’ It’s been very interesting to live through this in America… The fact that we can’t even agree that there is a problem is very strange.”

Trevor also admitted one of the best things about working on ‘The Daily Show’ has been establishing a much-needed routine in his every day life.

He told the new issue of America’s GQ magazine: “Sometimes you wake up and you’re like, ‘I don’t want to do this today.’ That’s one of the greatest blessings that ‘The Daily Show’ has given me.

“One of the best things for depression is routine and goal-oriented tasks. Every day I have to make a show. Every day I have to finish the show. Every day I have to let go of the show.

“I don’t want to be the hardest-working man in Hollywood. I don’t want to be on the Forbes list. I don’t want to be part of any of that. Forbes’ Happiest List—put me there if there’s such a thing.”
