The show must go on.
“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah appeared on his nightly broadcast Tuesday – but stayed silent throughout the episode.
Noah is battling a vocal issue and was instructed by his doctor not to speak in an effort to avoid needing surgery, it was revealed on the show.
Tuesday’s episode began with Noah sitting next to comic Mike Acosta, who addressed the audience on behalf of the host.
Acosta read the monologue for Tuesday’s show, while fellow comic Roy Wood Jr. sat down next to Noah for a later segment.
