The Daily Show host Trevor Noah was rushed this morning into emergency surgery, where the late-night comedian underwent an appendectomy.

"We're happy to report that the procedure went well and he is currently recuperating from the surgery," Comedy Central said in a statement.

Tonight's show will be a repeat, but Noah is expected back Thursday night.

In an interview with Adweek for this week's cover story, the 31-year-old South African comedian talked about the rigors of hosting a new show every day.
