Trevor, who was just in South Africa hosting the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 shared the news today. He couldn’t speak in last night’s show and his colleagues stepped in. He basically mimed his way as they spoke.

In the post, which appeared like a note to his fans, he said, “As you’ll know when you watch the Daily Show tonight I don’t have a voice right now.”

“According to the doctor, flying 36 hours and hosting a giant concert in South Africa didn’t help me. So now if I want to get better, I have to take it seriously so that I can perform at 100% on my new tour next year.”

“I hate the idea of cancelling shows, but I also hate the idea of losing my voice forever so I’m postponing all this year’s stand up shows and working hard on rehabbing this voice,” he continued.

It’s the second time he’s had to pull the plug. In November he missed shows in an effort to heal from bruised vocal chords, after taping in Miami for a week.
