SOLD OUT: Trevor Noah

  • April 21, 2017 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

This show is sold out.

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. 

“Noah’s presence and skill as a stand-up comedian are undeniable.” (The Chicago Tribune)

“He has always been an exceptional performer, possessed of a charismatic glow that makes it hard to look away.” (The Guardian)
