A handsome depiction of modern South African masculinity.
He is a shining example of the potential, and subsequent success, Africans have to promote the hybrid South African identity through the cultivation of a healthy state of ambition, to use individual agency and not let social commentary become something boring.
Happy Birthday Trevor Noah
Me and Trevor Noah on Valentines Day 2014.
“I was born a crime”
A funny line but Trevor really was born during the regime of Apartheid, to a Xhosa woman and a white Swiss man.
This man began with an acting career,radio work,brand promotion, and a successful show in South Africa, called “That’s Racist”.
He has now performed from the shores of New Zealand, to the worlds Capitalist capital USA, colonizer homebase UK, and the tempestuous Zambia.
He was the first stand-up comedian from SA to be on The Tonight Show, and Late Show with David Letterman. In 2013 he was a guest on BBC 2 comedy panel show “QI”, and then on his own show on BBC Radio 4 under the title ” Trevor Noah: The Racist.
On his tours abroad, he is unable to distance himself from the motif of South Africa, and we are thankful as we boast a plethora of satirical content that makes us endeared to him forever-unforgettably awesome.
He has some shows coming from the 06th-09th March 2014
Show starts on:
Thursday – Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 6pm
R120 – R280 per person
Teatro at Montecasino
