Trevor Noah, Please Book These 11 Celebrities On ‘The Daily Show’

Start booking them now!

"The Daily Show" is officially back on Monday (September 28), and they've already released their first week of guests -- Kevin Hart, Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe, New Jersey governor Chris Christie, and Ryan Adams.

That's a pretty good set of guests for new host Trevor Noah to start out with -- but there are a lot of other "Daily Show" regulars, political powerhouses, and celebrity superstars that we want him to try his hand at next. Here's our dream list of guests for the newest "Daily Show" frontman to interview some day soon:

  1. Jennifer Lawrence

    J-Law only appeared on "The Daily Show" once! Once! Clearly she's due for a return visit, obviously.

  2. Neil deGrasse Tyson

    AKA, the unofficial "Daily Show" actually-knows-stuff-about-science correspondent. At the very least he should be on hand to fact check Trevor Noah's new graphics like he did with Stewart.

  3. Charlize Theron

    Given their shared background as South Africans, they would probably have the best time talking about their experiences together.

  4. Melissa Benoist

    He's the person taking over "The Daily Show" from Jon Stewart. On "Supergirl," she's the first female superhero leading her own show on primetime. Perfect fit, right?

  5. Barack Obama

    I mean, obviously.

    Let's face it, his schedule's freer than Obama's, and he's also more fun and weird in an interview setting. Perfect proving ground for Noah.

    Hear me out -- I know public opinion is currently against him, but he's also one of the most frequently appearing "Daily Show" guests of all time with 15 appearances (the most frequent guest, journalist Fareed Zakaria, has been on the show 19 times). It'd be cool to see him get his groove back a little in a familiar setting.

  8. Taylor Swift

    HOW is Ryan Adams getting on this show before her? For shame. And she should bring her whole squad, too.

  9. Hillary Clinton

    Despite the fact that she's running for president, Clinton hasn't been opening up to the press all that much lately. Maybe a night on "The Daily Show" will change things?

  10. The new cast of "Star Wars"
    Disney

    Both they and Trevor Noah are each taking on their own legacy, so they probably have a lot to discuss.

  11. Jon Stewart

    Remember that time Steve Carell came back to "The Daily Show" as a guest to promote "The 40 Year Old Virgin" and he and Jon Stewart awkwardly stared at each other for the whole thing? That was comedy gold. Let's do that again.
