Coronavirus : Trevor Noah pays his furloughed crew’s salaries from his own pocket

Trevor Noah is coming through for his team!

The late-night talk show host and comedian is stepping up in a big way to help his normal studio crew, which has been furloughed due to the coronavirus crisis.

While Noah is shooting “The Daily Show” remotely, he’s personally paying the salaries of 25 crew members who can’t contribute to the remote version of the show, such as studio camera operators and other techs, according to Variety.

“These are the people who have been on the show with Trevor from day one and help him put on the show,” a source reportedly told the trade. “Trevor is…covering their salaries until the production business opens again.”

The South African comedian was the first out the gate to remotely host his Emmy Award-winning Comedy Central show from his Manhattan apartment.
