Trevor Noah

When: Fri., April 28, 7:30 & 10 p.m. 2017

I guess I can grasp someone not liking Trevor Noah's The Daily Show, though I enjoy it. Jon Stewart held the satirical news program's anchor desk for so long that, for some, there was no replacing him, certainly not with a comedian who was virtually unknown in the U.S. But not liking Trevor Noah, full stop? That I don't get. Noah is one of those rare comedians who seems custom-built for HDTV, radiant with good-natured appeal, like a handsome baby who's always fresh out of a bubble bath. With his boyish affect and his background as a South African with a black mother and a white father, Noah can go places a white or even a black American comedian can't, and he has updated The Daily Show for the intersectional era. Now you can experience the stand-up behind his friendly, quizzical hosting style at DPAC—if, that is, you can get wait-list tickets for his two sold-out shows. If not, there's always his recent Comedy Central stand-up special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation. —Brian Howe
