Trevor Noah, future host of The Daily Show, will perform Friday, July 10 at 8:00pm at the Palace Theatre on Atlantic Ave in Stamford.
The comedy superstar began his career in his native South Africa, where he was the television host of the South Africa Comedy Festival as well as two seasons of his own late night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.”
In 2012, Noah’s one man show, “The Racist,” at the Edinburgh Fringe received critical acclaim. That year his career caught the attention of David Paul Meyer, who based his award-winning documentary film, “You Laugh But It’s True,” on Noah’s life in post-apartheid South Africa.
Born in South Africa to a Swiss father and South African mother during a time when interracial marriage was still considered illegal, Trevor Noah was, in his own words, “born a crime.”
Trevor Noah’s long and difficult journey to success has since been chronicled in Rolling Stone, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, and by CNN and NPR’s “Talk of the Nation.”
On September 28, Trevor Noah is set to take over for Jon Stewart as host of the Emmy and Peabody-Award winning show, “The Daily Show,” following his time as a contributor in 2014.
Noah made television history as the first South African comedian to appear on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Show with David Letterman.”
Tickets for Trevor Noah’s performance on July 10 at 8:00pm at the Palace are now on sale at PalaceStamford.org or call the Box Office at 203-325-4466.
