- Award-winning stand-up comedian Trevor Noah had British fans roaring with laughter this weekend.
- He is considered the most successful comedian in Africa and the response to his latest show just proved again what a comedic genius the 36-year old is.
This was Trevor's first ever UK arena show and it was also the first time in two and a half years that he has performed in the UK since a highly successful but much smaller two-night event run at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo in 2015.
Trevor was very excited to return to the England and perform for the Londoners.
A lot has happened for me in the two years since I last performed in the UK, and by the looks of things quite a lot has been happening there too! Brexit has inspired everybody else to go and screw up their own countries, a baby interrupting a BBC News interview gave us the greatest moment in the history of television, ever, and Jeremy Corbyn played Glastonbury.
I can’t wait to see what craziness goes down in the UK between now and May… I think we’ll have a few things to discuss! To be playing my first UK arena show at London’s famous O2 Arena is a real honour & I’m thrilled to be returning to the UK.
Trevor lives and works in the United States these days, but he keeps making South Africans proud of him with his stellar performances and stylish attitude.
Trevor's London show was praised as a delight to listen to critical reviewers described him as having "laid-back optimism that can take even heavy subjects seriously, but still make them lighter than air,".
After the show Trevor thanked his fans for supporting him so whole-heartedly and he even got in a joke about the newlywed couple Prince Harry and Megan Markle.
Thank you, everyone, for making last night a dream come true and thank you to Megan Markle and Prince Harry, I know you wanted to come but you had already paid for the church.
Trevor shared a video clip of his performance:
South Africans proudly spoke up on social media about Trevor's successful performance:
