​Trevor Noah announces first batch of "Daily Show" guests

Trevor Noah has started lining up guests for his first week as host of "The Daily Show" -- and it's quite a diverse bunch.

Comic Kevin Hart will pay a visit to the Comedy Central series next Monday, Noah's debut episode. Whitney Wolfe, founder of the new dating app Bumble, will appear on Tuesday, and Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie will follow on Wednesday night.

Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, who just released an album of Taylor Swift covers, will perform on Thursday.

Noah, who is taking over the anchor chair from long-time host Jon Stewart, told The Associated Press that "it isn't easy to reboot and recreate a new show from an old show in just five weeks."

The 31-year-old South African comedian appeared on "The Daily Show" a couple of times prior to being named host. He's already familiar with the late-night hosting scene, having headed up the South African talk show "Tonight With Trevor Noah."

He has appeared on "The Tonight Show Jay Leno" and the "Late Show with David Letterman" and was the subject of a 2011 documentary about his life and career, dubbed "You Laugh But It's True." Noah is also a regular in the stand-up comedy circuit.
