Trevor Noah’s eagerly awaited home-coming tour’s Eastern Cape leg kicks off at the Vodacom Amphitheater at the Boardwalk in Port Elizabeth tomorrow, and runs through to Sunday.
After full house shows in the United States since appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Show in January, Noah has returned to South Africa briefly to appease his local fans in a whirlwind nationwide tour.
The tour, which has already been hosted at the Playhouse Opera Theatre in Durban last month, includes shows at The Lyric at Gold Reef Casino (Gauteng) from the 9th to the 14th of October, the 6th to the 9th of November and again from the 20th to the 24th of November; The Baxter Theatre (Cape Town) from the 15th to the 28th of October and the Brooklyn Theatre (Pretoria) from the 13th to the 18th of November.
His show, “That’s Racist,” was voted the “act most likely to make a million quid” at the Edinburgh Festival in August this year, and The Guardian newspaper described his set as “an “impressive fringe debut from a classy young comic”.
Tickets for the Port Elizabeth show are already selling fast.
Noah has sold more DVDs (Crazy Normal, Goodbye for now show and Daywalker 2.0.) than any other standup comedian in Africa.
Shows will start at eight from Tuesday through Saturday, and Sunday’s show will start at five.
Cost: R180 per person
