This year’s Mirth Week show features a comedy line up of Hasan Minhaj and Trevor Noah!

HASAN MINHAJ is a correspondent on the Emmy and Peabody award-winning program ‘The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’. His critically acclaimed one man show ‘Homecoming King’ played a sold out Off-Broadway run last winter, and is now touring nationally. A 2014 Just For Laughs ‘New Face’, he was selected by the Sundance Institute to develop his solo show and feature film at the prestigious New Frontier Storytelling Lab. His viral web series ‘The Truth with Hasan Minhaj’ has been featured in countless publications including The Huffington Post, Gawker, and New York Times. He has been seen on a variety of other television programs including Arrested Development on Netflix, HBO’s Getting On, and @Midnight on Comedy Central.

 

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 John 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.
