Find out for yourself why the South African jokester is one of the world’s top comics…
Trevor Noah: African American, Saturday 26 May, 10pm, Comedy Central/HD (CH 132/181). Also available for 7 days in Catch Up > Channels > Comedy Central
You’ve got to be pretty decent at making people laugh to sell out the O2 Arena. Just ask Trevor Noah.
The comic recently brought the house down at the huge London venue – but don’t beat yourself up if you failed to blag a ticket. Why? Because you’re about to get a front-row seat to see this red-hot comedian in action with the UK premiere of Trevor Noah: African American!
This hour-long stand-up special filmed at New York’s Tarrytown Music Hall sees Noah at his perceptive best, riffing hilariously on what it was like to grow up as a mixed-race child in apartheid-era South Africa. Noah’s shrewd take on race relations will certainly get you thinking, while his love of groundbreaking comedians like Chris Rock and Richard Pryor is evident in his high-energy performance.
But the cross-cultural comedy doesn’t end there. Having uprooted to the USA in his 20s to find further fame as a comedian and ultimately host of the satirical The Daily Show (which you can also watch on Comedy Central), Noah has a razor-sharp interpretation of American society that will have you howling with laughter on your sofa.
So who’s up for a night of cracking comedy from one of the world’s best stand-ups? We thought you might say yes…
