Prior to sitting behind the famous anchor desk of The Daily Show, Noah was well-known in the stand-up circuit, performing at comedy festivals such as the Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, musing on topics such as race, culture, identity and politics.
In addition to his blistering commentary on US current affairs, Noah’s stint as host of The Daily Show has also been praised for his “Between The Scenes” segments in which he has “off-camera” conversations with members of the live studio audience on hot-button topics like the “black friend” defense, addressing the controversy over his comment that technically, Africa — and not France — had won the 2018 World Cup, and that time he was was Jay-Z’s bodyguard for one night.
Tickets for the show, to be held at the Grand Hall of Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, will be on sale here from 10am, Friday, May 24 for HK$588, HK$788, HK$988 and HK$1,088.
