Kau to host show Down Under

It's been a great week for South African comedy as David Kau, pictured, was yesterday announced as the new host of The Evening Show in Australia.

This follows hot on the heels of compatriot Trevor Noah being announced as the replacement of Jon Stewart on the US news satire show The Daily Show.

Kau will take over from Michelle Jones, who has been hosting The Evening Show for the past 20 years since it first aired on Australian screens.

"Yoh! I can't believe my luck. Here I was thinking that Trevor was the best export, but I guess Australia also found me and thought I was a big deal," he gushed.

Kau said he was already in Australia to sign his contract and is expected to be on Aussie screens as soon as next month.
