Trevor Noah Features On Vanity Fair "Titans Of Late Night" Photo!

Trevor Noah is at the top of his game right now, after the new host of "The Daily Show" was one of the 10 men photographed for Vanity Fair's "titans" of late night talk shows that was released yesterday.

This is a good thing for the South African comedian, but the all male photo was met with uproar over the lack of women in the late night world.

Noah responded, telling News week that he believes "Women Are 'More Powerful' in Comedy" than men.

"Yes, that Vanity Fair [spread] is all men, which is what it is. But I guess what we need to look at is how is that evolving? The first step in that is you go, OK, there's two men of color. That's a big jump. Pretty soon there will be a woman that'll be added to that. And there will probably be more women, which is gonna be fantastic. And over time, that'll happen; it's a conversation that we need to continue having. We always have to address the shortcomings of any era that we are living in. I think we also sometimes need to take a beat to realize the progress that is being made."

He added, "women are more powerful than men in comedy right now. If you look at the top comedy actors, Melissa McCarthy by far is killing most of the numbers of other actors. You look at Amy Schumer right now—I would argue that there is no more preeminent voice in comedy. Tina Fey, Amy Poehler..."

The Vanity Fair photo featured 10 men— Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher, James Corden, Larry Wilmore, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah

Vanity Fair titled their article: " Why Late-Night Television Is Better than Ever".
