The second shows will take place at the MACC on May 25, at 10 p.m. and May 26, at 10:30 p.m. at Neal S. Blaidsdell Concert Hall in Honolulu.

Trevor Noah is the host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” and he is making his Hawaiʻi debut for two special evenings of comedy on Maui and Oʻahu. In this heated political year, Noah will have plenty of hot topics to cover in what are sure to be two of Hawaiʻi’s most talked about comedy shows of 2017.

Tickets for Trevor Noah’s May 25th show on Maui sold out extremely fast during Promoter Rick Bartalini Presents’ special kama’āina pre-sale. To meet overwhelming demand, a second Maui show was added for 10 p.m. the same night.


Fans who missed their chance to score tickets for the 8 p.m. show can buy tickets for the 10 p.m. show starting Monday, April 24, at 10 a.m. here. Tickets for Noah’s Honolulu show on May 26, at 8 p.m. are completely sold out with very limited seats remaining for the second show at 10:30 p.m.

Noah is the most successful comedian in Africa. He is the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning program “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. Noah joined “The Daily Show” in 2014 as a recurring contributor and subsequently succeeded Jon Stewart as host in September of 2015.

Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah has hosted numerous television shows including South Africa’s music, television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival and two seasons of his own late night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.”


He made his U.S. television debut in 2012 on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and has also appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman,” becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show.

This year, Noah debuted his 9th new comedy special “Afraid of the Dark” on Netflix. The special was shot before a packed house at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on November 5, 2016. His 2015 Comedy Central stand-up special, “Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation,” brought Noah’s unique world view and global analysis of American culture to the forefront. Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film “You Laugh But It’s True” which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa.

He continues to tour all over the world and has performed in front of sold out crowds at Hammersmith Apollo in London, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and countless cities throughout the United States.


Trevor has been profiled in Rolling Stone, Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal, and by CNN and NPR’s Talk of the Nation. He was nominated for “Personality of the Year” at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards, winning the award in 2015, and was featured on the cover of GQ South Africa.
