Howard Stern ROASTS Grammys host Trevor Noah for being ‘too positive’ at show and laments fans ‘killing’ Jo Koy with criticism after Golden Globes
Howard Stern mercilessly mocked Trevor Noah for being ‘too positive’ while hosting the 66th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night.
Despite receiving rave reviews for successfully completing the three-hour ceremony for the fourth consecutive year, the comedian, 39, couldn’t escape a critical review from the featured radio personality, 70, on Tuesday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show.
‘He did the opposite of a barbecue. He was like a cheerleader,’ Stern said disapprovingly. “He didn’t say one negative thing about anybody.”
His co-host Robin Quivers suggested her decision to play it safe and not ruffle any feathers comes after stand-up comedian Jo Koy bombed during his disastrous hosting of the Golden Globes last month.

Stern proceeded to show a clip of Noah before doing his own impression of the late night talk show.
’21 Savage is so great. Do you know how big he is? He always pays his taxes on time,’ he muses. ‘And you know what else? Doja Cat flosses every day. That’s why she has such a big breath!’
The father-of-three then nodded: “No one is safe, no one is off limits to my admiration tonight.”
Stern speculated that it’s clear Noah “did what he had to do” to avoid stepping on any toes or offending anyone.
“I felt so bad for the guy,” Stern explained. “Trevor Noah is a comedian … (and) I think he did what he had to do.”
“I mean, look at that guy Jo Koy,” he told listeners. “He went over there, he tried to make some jokes and they almost fucking killed the guy.”
Stern referred to Koy’s terrible Golden Globes monologue, which went catastrophic after Greta Gerwig’s Barbie as a film “based on a doll with big boobies.”
Koy has been labeled ‘the worst host ever’ on social media and criticized for his mean and crude jokes.
Despite receiving rave reviews for successfully emceeing the three-hour ceremony for the fourth consecutive year, the comedian, 39, was unable to draw a critical review from the outspoken radio personality, 70, during Tuesday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show does not escape.

His co-host Robin Quivers suggested her decision to play it safe and not ruffle any feathers comes after Jo Koy bombed during his disastrous hosting of the Golden Globes last month.
As well as receiving a death stare from Taylor Swift after opening up about her relationship with Travis Kelce, Selena Gomez was seen putting her head in her hands in disbelief as he joked that ‘the ‘key moment’ in the Barbie movie was when Barbie experienced ‘bad breath, cellulite, and flat feet, or what casting directors call character actor.’
The monologue led to an outpouring of criticism on social media with some calling it ‘sexist’ and ‘not funny’.
On X user wrote: ‘I feel like no one was in charge of the golden globes and Jo Koy just walked in and said “I’m hosting” and no one bothered to check if it was right.’
‘Jo Koy’s monologue is absolutely awful. I think most of the audience is just sorry to laugh and his bad jokes about Barbie show he didn’t understand Barbie.’
Another person referenced another monologue, this one by British comedian Ricky Gervais in 2020.
‘This has got to be the worst opening monologue (from Jo Koy) in #GoldenGlobes history… is he trying to be Ricky Gervais?’, the user wrote on X.
One poster noted all the people who refused the offer before Koy was chosen in his criticism, saying: ‘It would have been funny if Jo Koy’s entire monologue was just him reading all 378 names of people who said no to the show before they called him.’
