Event Time and Date

Friday, April 21 2017, 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Trevor Noah might be best recognized across the United States as Jon Stewart’s successor on Comedy Central’s satirical news program The Daily Show, but he is world-renowned as a captivating standup comedian gifted at blending his personal stories and observations on race with socio-political commentary. Born in South Africa to a black mother and a white father during apartheid, Noah uses his family history and signature charm to talk frankly and hilariously about race, immigration, terrorism, and other hot-button topics that other comedians would steer away from tackling. In addition to comedy, Noah is the author of the 2016 bestselling book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood chronicling his inspiring coming of age during apartheid and its immediate aftermath. Despite Noah’s demanding television schedule, he continues to tour worldwide and has performed to sold-out crowds including at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
