’You can see what prompted Eddie Izzard to want to produce him here…he performs with remarkable poise, scoring plenty of hits…a great entertainer.’ ★★★★ Times

Fresh from a ground-breaking total sell-out season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, South African comedian Trevor Noah makes his London debut at Soho Theatre with a four-week run of his critically acclaimed show The Racist.

Trevor has been performing for a little over five years but his explosion onto the South African entertainment scene has been nothing short of meteoric, taking on TV, radio and his first love, standup comedy, which he has performed on both local and international stages including the UK and US. His sharp wit, intelligent commentary, unmistakable charm and clinical delivery have established him as an extremely popular performer with undoubted world-class potential.

‘A handsome, effortlessly engaging polyglot… Fascinating and frequently hilarious… For someone so persecuted by language’s prejudices and limitations, Noah demonstrates a mastery of it, standing out chiefly for his considerable talent.’
★★★★ Scotsman

‘Intelligent, classy and savvily-observed comedy from a warm and genuine performer.’ ★★★★ Chortle

‘Noah is an immensely likable performer – warm and upbeat, with an inquiring, irreverent approach to other people’s prejudices… we can expect to see a lot more of him over here.’ Observer
