You know, when I… when I starting hosting
The Daily Show, my dream was
to learn how to read. -No, uh, my dream…
-(laughter) was to reach people
all around the world. You know, I wanted this show
to have a reach-around, which is a phrase I invented
but did not google. -Well…
-(laughter) on Monday, my dream came true
in a big way when China’s state TV network broadcast a portion
of a segment that we did about the Chinese telecom
company Huawei. China, baby! -(cheering, applause)
-What?! China! Huh? Biggest demographic
in the world, and The Daily Show
just broke through. Even better, 1.3 billion people just heard the state news say I was famous. Yeah. -(cheering) -You saw that?
I’m, like, famous. And, I mean… obviously, that’s true,
I am famous. I mean, here’s a picture of me
with Beyoncé. Yeah? Uh, if you zoom in, like,
I’m in, like, the row… you’ll see– I’m-I’m famous,
that’s all I’m saying. But this was
a really cool thing, so for more
on this amazing achievement, we’re joined now to celebrate with The Daily Show’s own
Roy Wood Jr., everybody! -(cheering, applause)
-What up, Roy? What up, Roy? -Oh, man!
-Hey. What’s going on? Isn’t this amazing, dude? Our segment played
all over China. -Did you see that? -Oh.
I’ll tell you what I saw, Trevor I saw you use this platform
to spread Chinese propaganda! Is Trevor even your real name? Or should I call you
by your spy name, -African Panda?
-(laughter) No, Roy,
what are you talking about? No, you-you can’t watch
one segment that China decided
to rebroadcast, then claim that I’m working
for a foreign power. -What are you talking about?
-One segment? Really, Trevor? You might fool
all these sheeple in here, but I’ve done my research, and
I found that you’ve been using The Daily Show to spread
propaganda around the world. China’s just the tip
of the iceberg. Here’s where you teamed up with
North Korean state television. If you ask me, I’m excited
for this Korean invasion. The jig is up, Panda.
The jig’s up. -No, no, no.
-You’re a spy! -No, no, no, no.
No, no, come on. -He is a spy! -No, come on, come on. Come on.
-Spy! None of that…
none of that is true. Oh, so you’re denying
having cute dimples? Okay, that part is true. But… but the line
was taken out of context. When I said “Korean invasion,” I was talking about
the Korean boy band BTS, right? I’m happy that their music
is invading America. -I’m not a spy.
-But you’re still a traitor who pledges allegiance
to the Russians! Roll the clip! I, Trevor Noah, pledge my life to Mother Russia and the glorious
Communist Revolution1 (laughter) Care to explain? Okay, that-that
last one was real. I was, um…
I was going through a phase. I fell in love
with a Russian bot on Twitter, and then things…
things got out of hand. -I knew it. I knew it. -But
I’m-I’m not a spy. It’s just… Hello, 911? Yeah, I’d like to report
a traitor. What’s that,
you want me to call the FBI? Hell, I’m not calling the FBI.
I got parking tickets. Just send over Jason Bourne. You got a five-minute head
