Africa’s finest export to the international comedy stage, Trevor Noah, is set to tour parts of India between September and October 2023. The India gig is part of the 39-year-old funny man’s yearlong tour, dubbed the ‘Off The Record Tour’.
Announcing the Indian leg of the tour in a tweet, the South African couldn’t hide his love for the vast Asian country which is famed for its vibrant culture scene and great cuisine.
“After a lifetime of loving India’s culture, I’m so excited to finally have the privilege of bringing my current stand-up comedy tour to one of the most exciting countries in the world!”, part of the tweet read.
The show, spread over the course of ten days, will take the comedian to Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai. Currently, Noah is touring different parts of the United States, where he is based. “Off The Record” is his maiden tour after spending seven years at the desk of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” as host.
His ability to mimic different accents, an expansive worldview, eloquence and off- the -cuff wit, endeared him to many and silenced critics who felt he was a replacement too small to fit into the big shoes of The Daily Show’s former host, Jon Stewart.
At the end of 2022, Noah announced his decision to call it quits from the Daily Show, much to the shock of his groundswell of fans spread across the globe. Expected to run until March 2024, “Off The Record” will give comedy lovers a chance to touch base with one of the craft’s finest prodigies of all time.
