Featuring all-new material, the show will focus on exploring how life has changed for Noah after the big break that took him to America, placing him in the hallowed host chair of The Best F*&#ing News programme in the world.

Noah announced the news with a special video message on Comedy Central social media sites in Africa at 16:00 on Tuesday, 14 February.

Speaking from his Daily Show desk, Noah said, “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 at the TicketPro Dome on 10 and 11 August. New jokes, new show, special guests – see you there.”

Dillon Khan, senior channel director Comedy Central Africa, says, “This is stand-up comedy on a scale never seen from a local comedian in this country, and by far the biggest must watch stand-up comedy event of the year. Trevor Noah has sold out every local comedy tour he has done in South Africa since 2010 and we have no doubt that the same thing will happen at The TicketPro Dome this August.”

Ryan Harduth, show producer, says, “We’re going all out from a production standpoint to create the best comedy experience The TicketPro Dome has ever seen. We will be showcasing local and international opening acts to support Trevor, and we’re incredibly excited to share this show with our audiences.”
