Comedian Trevor Noah to come to Bryce Jordan Center on Oct. 7

August 21, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Stand-up comedian Trevor Noah will come to Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center on Oct. 7.

Noah was already the most successful comedian in Africa when he was introduced to U.S. audiences in 2014, as the successor to host Jon Stewart on Comedy Central’s "Daily Show." Since then, Noah has become one of the world’s brightest comic masterminds, thanks in part to his Comedy Central special, "Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation." In that show as well as his current material, Noah brings a unique global perspective to American culture and politics, with results that are thoughtful as they are rambunctiously funny.

Noah holds the distinction of being the first South African stand-up to appear on both "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late Show" with David Letterman. He also hit the New York Times bestseller list with "Born a Crime: Stories form a South African Childhood," his humorous memoir about coming of age during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. 

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 24 at the Bryce Jordan Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State Downtown Theatre, online at Ticketmaster or by phone 800-745-3000. Intimate theatre-style seats start at $49.50.
