South African-born comedian and television host Trevor Noah graces the latest cover of TIME magazine. Noah is also named one of TIME’s Next Generation Leaders.

The magazine revealed on Friday that the Daily Show host and "nine other stars are ready to take over their fields".

The article list ten young rising stars and industry changers; from innovative artists and athletes to risk-taking activists and groundbreaking entrepreneurs.

TIME shared on Instagram:

Trevor Noah is one of TIME's Next Generation Leaders. Noah, 33, (@trevornoah) is Jon Stewart's successor as The Daily Show host.

Since his debut in 2015, the South African comedian has more than doubled the show's international reach and he has now become the master of the eloquent Trump-takedown. ⠀

"I inherited a sense of humor from my mom, the ability to laugh in the face of danger," Noah tells TIME.
