‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah To Perform At BJC

Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s Daily Show, will perform at the Bryce Jordan Center Sunday, October 7 with special guest Angelo Lozada. According to the Homecoming website, it appears the performance will coincide with the annual Homecoming kickoff concert put on in conjunction with SPA.

Already a roaring success in Africa, Noah was introduced to U.S. audiences in 2014 when he succeeded Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. He brings a global perspective to American culture and politics and was a smash hit in his Comedy Central special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation.

He was the first South African stand-up to appear on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman. His memoir about coming of age during the twilight of apartheid, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, is a New York Times bestseller.

Lozada is best known for creating and starring in the award-winning web series GET SOME! that earned him three nominations for Best Actor in a webseries at the Official Latino Short Film Festival, the Int’l Academy Of Web Television (IAWTV), and NBC’s Short Cuts Film Festival.
