"The Daily Show’s" Trevor Noah is headed to Santa Barbara’s Arlington Theatre on Friday, Jan. 19. The comedian continues his busy touring and performance schedule throughout the rest of 2017 and into the new year, despite also being the host of one of television’s most successful late-night/political satire programs. The show on Jan. 19 will be one of three scheduled over two nights in the Los Angeles area that weekend, with Noah also performing a pair of stand-up comedy sets at the Dolby Theatre the following evening.
Since taking over the reins of The Daily Show two years ago, Noah and his talent for turning real news into comedy has continued to keep the Comedy Central show a hit, despite having to replace its longtime favorite face in Jon Stewart. Noah’s continued involvement on the show, which airs four nights per week, has earned the program highly praised recognition. He and the rest of the team involved in the show's production have received nominations from the NAACP Image Awards, Writers Guild of America and even took home a Primetime Emmy earlier this year for “Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.”
“I think at the end of the day, human beings like to laugh. Laughter is a pressure valve that is released. It’s a moment of joy. It’s a burst,” Noah told AXS ahead of the 48th NAACP Image Awards earlier this year. “It’s almost like a brief flash of what you wish you always were. How you wish you always felt. Everyone likes that feeling. It’s the reason endorphins are released and so everyone enjoys that feeling. It makes sense.”
Noah also published his first book in 2016 with the autobiographical comedy, Born a Crime.
