Fallon told Noah that he's stepping into the hosting position at a prime time, with the 2016 presidential race providing material for his new gig. "This is insane. I've never seen anything like it. Sometimes it looks like a fighting game and it's all the characters you can choose. It's like who do you select?" Noah said. "It's insane. It's the most ridiculous thing. I'm excited for it; I'm ready. I feel like it's Game of Thrones. We need a map to show you who goes where and how."
He concluded: "We just got democracy, so this is like I've gone into the future. I want to go home and tell people, 'you don't know what's coming! It gets crazy!'"
On Sept. 28, Noah will take over for Stewart on Comedy Central's The Daily Show. Check him out being interviewed by Jimmy Fallon
