Mirthweek Comedy Show featuring Trevor Noah

presented by University Program Board


Hasan Minhaj was recently selected to host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, DC on April 29. Since Minhaj is no longer able to join us for the Mirthweek Comedy Show, comedian and actor Tone Bell will open for Trevor Noah. 

TREVOR NOAH has hosted numerous television shows in his native country, including South Africa’s music, television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival and two seasons of his own late night talk show. He had his U.S. television debut on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and has also appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman,” becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show. He’s slated to do the Jimmy Kimmel show in January. His Showtime comedy special, “Trevor Noah: African American” premiered in 2013 and he took over for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show in Fall 2015.

Trevor presented his one man show “The Racist” at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe in a sold-out run that became the buzz of audiences and journalists and the same year was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film “You Laugh But It’s True” which tells the story of Trevor’s remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. 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 in Australia, among others. Trevor has been profiled in Rolling Stone, Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal, and by CNN and NPR’s “Talk of the Nation.” He was nominated for “Personality of the Year” at the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards and is currently featured on the cover of GQ South Africa.
