‘The Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah to perform stand-up show at Foxwoods on Saturday, Jan. 23
Trevor Noah is the host, executive producer and writer of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” But he still takes time to do live stand-up shows like the one set for Saturday, Jan. 23, at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah has hosted numerous television shows, including South Africa’s music, television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival and two seasons of his own late night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.” He made his U.S. TV debut in 2012 on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and also appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman.”
The comic’s one-man show, “The Racist,” sold out at the 2012 Edinburgh festival known as The Fringe. That same year, Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary, “You Laugh But It’s True,” which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa.
In addition, Noah was nominated for Personality of the Year at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards. He was featured on the October 2014 cover of GQ South Africa, and has been profiled in publications from Rolling Stone to Newsweek.
