Trevor Noah is the most successful comedian in South Africa. He is currently the host of Emmy and Peabody Award winning television show The Daily Show. He returns to New Zealand for one show only at the Civic Theatre in Auckland.

He made his US television debut in 2012 on The TonightShow with Jay Leno and Late Show With David Letterman, becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show.
The same year, his one-man show The Racist at the Edinburgh Festival was a total sell out that became the buzz of audiences and journalists. He was the subject of David Paul Meyer’saward winning documentary film You Laugh But It’s True which tells the story of Trevor’s remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. Trevor addresses major domestic and international events, sharing his outlook on the world today including terrorism, racial tensions in America and what it is like being African and travelling into the US during the Ebola crisis.
He continues to tour all over the world and has performed in front of sold out crowds at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and the Sydney Opera House as well as many US cities. He has performed for the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance. He was nominated for Personality of the Year at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won the award in 2015.
