With just weeks to go before he steps into Jon Stewart’s high-profile seat as host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah received an immersive introduction to TV critics this week in two appearances at the TCA Summer Press Tour.

In a stand-up performance Tuesday night, and again at a panel presentation Wednesday, Noah talked about racism, terrorism and a Twitter controversy that erupted after he was named as Stewart’s replacement. He also talked about how “The Daily Show” will be different after the transition.

TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin was on hand to provide in-depth coverage of Noah’s appearances — and his reception by critics. Please click here to read her full report.
