Trevor Noah is showing love to the furloughed workers of The Daily Show by paying their salaries.

Variety has learned that Noah is personally paying the salaries of 25 furloughed members of “The Daily Show” crew during the coronavirus pandemic. Noah has informed crew members that he will continue to pay their salaries until production begins to ramp back up in the television industry.

“These are the people who have been on the show with Trevor from day one and help him put on the show,” a source close to the production tells Variety. “Trevor is personally covering their salaries until the production business opens again. He respects his crew tremendously and feels it’s only right that they get thru this together.”

Production on the show stopped last month and has left Trevor to do the show from his home.
