As suspects from the Jan. 6 riot in Washington D.C. are dealing with the consequences of their actions, Trevor Noah is reaching out to “help” the insurrectionists with some much-needed legal advice in a hilarious advertisement, TMZ reports.
The Daily Show host took out a full-page ad in The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and The New York Times, which began running on Thursday, for those who are seeking legal representation after storming the capital at the beginning of the year. Noah is pictured in the ad with his partners at the fictitious law firm that includes the entire cast of The Daily Show.
“Are you a soon-to-be ex-President? About to lose legal immunity? Has your lawyer gone to jail?" the ad reads.
Noah says his law firm is more than equipped to fight charges like “attempted vice presidenticide,” and “lectern theft.”
“We get you off and you won’t have to pay us $130,000,” the ad says.

The promotion goes as far as to set up a hotline for people to call 1-85-OOPS-JAN6 (1-856-677-5266) where they can reach the law firm, Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons.
Noah’s advertisement comes as he prepares for the start of a new season of The Daily Show where he'll be in the studio next month as TV Line reported.
“As for going back to the studio, I have a few surprises as to what that will look like,” Noah said. “People always say, ‘When are you going back?’ I’m never going back, I’m only moving forward.”
“As for whether he’ll ditch his trademark hoodies and return to more formal attire, I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to the suits and the leather shoes,” he continued. “If I do, I do. If I don’t, I don’t — but I will no longer think this is something I have to do.”
According to Comedy Central, the series will “continue to produce exclusive brand content across its digital, social and podcast platforms,” in anticipation of the show’s return.
