Johannesburg – In an interview with radio star Sway, Canadian comedian Russell Peters accused Trevor Noah of stealing his material.
It started when Sway mentioned that Trevor is one of his favourite comedians.
“Why? If you’re a fan of me, you don’t need to be a Trevor Noah fan. Thieving motherfucker,” Russell reacted, adding: “go review the fucking tapes.”
Mentioning that it has happened on more than one occasion, Russell said that he called Trevor out on it before: “I thought he would stop and it continued.”
The Canadian star asked the Sway in the Morning team to “watch him [Trevor] do his Russian bit, versus me doing my Russian bit,” referring to a joke he told, saying that his joke came out before Trevor’s special.
WATCH THE CLIP HERE:"When I called him he said, 'which joke did I steal?'. How many jokes have you stolen if you gotta say which one?" He concluded when asked about confronting Trevor.
