The Trevor Noah Galas

International stand up sensation and The Daily Show host, Trevor Noah, returns to Just For Laughs this summer to host two prestigious shows on Saturday July 28. Two chances to come spend an evening with one of the funniest and most relevant comedic voices of our time, accompanied by two different lineups of guest comedians from across the festival, curated from around the globe.

Trevor Noah is the most successful comedian in Africa and is the host of the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning The Daily Show on Comedy Central. This past year, The Daily Show was nominated for a Writers Guild Award, a GLAAD award as well as two NAACP Image Awards. Noah joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2014 as a contributor.

In February 2017 Noah debuted his 9th comedy special Afraid of the Dark on Netflix. In 2016, Noah debuted his one-hour stand-up special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation, on Comedy Central. He was also the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film You Laugh but It’s True, which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. His Showtime comedy special, Trevor Noah: African American, premiered in 2013. As well, he was nominated for “Personality of the Year” at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won the award in 2015.

In November 2016, Noah released his first book, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, which was an instant New York Times bestseller. Additionally, his performance on the Born a Crime audiobook was Audible’s highest rated audiobook of 2016, and has remained one of the top selling titles on Audible since its release.
