After disappointing his fans last year, SA-born comedian Trevor Noah is set to storm Mzansi later this year for a two-night comedy show.
Trevor who bailed from hosting last year’s MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs), will perform at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg on August 10 & 11. According to the comedian, the show will feature new things. Also, we will get to hear about how much his life has changed since taking over as host of The Daily Show in America.
“I am coming back home to do a show – not because Donald Trump has kicked me out, but because I would like to do a show for you. New jokes, new show, special guests – see you there,” Trevor said.
And if a video on the Comedy Central Africa Twitter page is anything to go by, then Mzansi is about to a piece of the comedian’s jokes live at The Dome.

SA-born comedian Trevor Noah was supposed to return to South Africa to host the MTV Africa Music Awards late last year. However, he had to cancel the gig after falling ill.
At the eleventh hour, the stand-up comedy icon and host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” pulled out as host of the sixth edition of the glitzy event due to a severe upper respiratory and ear infection.
Tickets for Trevor Noah Live at the Dome will be on sale later this month via Ticketpro. The price range is from R300.
Meanwhile, the 2017 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Image Awards recently honoured Trevor with two awards.
Noah did scoop two awards. However, he didn’t win for his work on The Daily Show or comedy. Instead, he was recognized twice for his memoir, Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. The comedian-turned-writer won in the categories “Outstanding Literary Work – Debut Author” as well as “Outstanding Literary Work – Biography/ Autobiography”.
