Trevor Noah 2Gotham Comedy Club
208 W 23rd St, New York, NY
South Africa may not be the first place you think of for comedy, but Trevor Noah is doing his bit to change all that. Winner of the Breakout Artist Award at the 2013 Sydney Comedy Festival, Noah has been dazzling audiences around the world with his smart, funny and thought-provoking stand-up shows. The child of a black South African mother and white Swiss-German father, the comedian had an interesting relationship with race growing up in post-apartheid South Africa. His material finds him reflecting on his experiences and sharing his observations about race and place. A charming and masterful storyteller with a quick wit, Noah's boat should be afloat for a long, long time, but it only docks in New York once in a blue moon. Catch him while you can.
