Trevor Noah Recalls Emergency Appendectomy Trip [VIDEO]

Trevor Noah is back to โ€œThe Daily Showโ€ after experience first hand Health Care in America over an emergency appendectomy, he was taken to the emergency room Tuesday with abdominal pain.

โ€œAlthough I donโ€™t know if โ€™emergency roomโ€™ is the right term, because they make you wait,โ€ he said. โ€œI feel like there should be two rooms: one for emergencies and another for people who can fill out forms.โ€

Noah said a nurse asked him to fill out a series of forms despite his repeated claims that he felt like he may be dying.

โ€œWhat more information do you need, other than the fact that Iโ€™m dying?โ€ he said.

The host said he periodically fainted from the pain of a perforated appendix, but the nurse told him he was not allowed to faint in the waiting area and should instead go to triage to lose consciousness.

โ€œYouโ€™re telling me where I can and cannot faint?โ€ he said.

Noah was finally taken, trembling with pain, to another room for treatment โ€” where he was followed by the same nurse, who brought still more forms and asked how he would be paying for treatment of his life-threatening condition.

โ€œWith my life, clearly,โ€ he said.

He told the nurse he wasnโ€™t sure if he had health insurance, and he wasnโ€™t even sure how that worked, but she recognized him from โ€œDaily Showโ€ billboards around New York City and decided he could afford to pay for treatment.

Noah thanked all his well-wishers, and he assured fans that Comedy Central urged him to take off more time to recover โ€” but he wanted to return to work.

He said some fans suggested he was forced to return to work because the cable networkโ€™s executives are racist against black people.

โ€œIs this Comedy Central or the cotton fields?โ€ Noah said one concerned fan tweeted.
