NEW YORK (AP) Anticipating its relaunch with Trevor Noah as host later this month, Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" has added three new comics to its rotating cast of correspondents.

Ronny Chieng, who has spent the bulk of his comic career in Australia; Desi Lydic, who appeared in MTV's "Awkward"; and Roy Wood Jr., a stand-up comic who participated in NBC's "Last Comic Standing" and Comedy Central's "Laugh Riots" competition, are the new staff members.

Holdovers from the Jon Stewart era include Jordan Klepper, Hasan Minhaj, Jessica Williams, Lewis Black, John Hodgman, Al Madrigal, Aasif Mandvi and Kristen Schaal.

Noah begins as host of the weeknight show on Sept. 28.
