Award-winning stand-up Trevor Noah, the most successful comedian in Africa and host of the Emmy® Award-winning The Daily Show in the United States, will be returning to the UK next year for one night at The O2, on Saturday 19 May 2018.
As the South African comic's first ever UK arena show, this will also be the first time in two and a half years that Noah has performed in the UK, following a two-night sell out run at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo in December 2015.
On returning to the UK in May 2018, Noah said: «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»
Having sold out his stand up shows across five continents, Noah’s appeal has rocketed even further over the past two years, since he took over hosting duties from Jon Stewart on Comedy Central’s US news satire programme The Daily Show, in September 2015.
Tickets are on sale at 10am on Friday 3 November.
