Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, underwent an emergency appendectomy surgery early Wednesday, the TV network announced.
An appendectomy is usually performed when someone is suffering from appendicitis, where the appendix becomes inflamed and causes severe abdominal pain.
"We're happy to report the procedure went well and he is recuperating from the surgery," the network said in a statement on Twitter.
"As a result, The Daily Show will air an encore tonight [Wednesday]. We expect he and the show will be back with an original episode tomorrow," the network added.
