When he announced the dates of a world tour a few months ago, South Africans were disappointed to see that there were no shows scheduled for the country or the continent.

But now fans will get a chance to see Trevor Noah when he comes home for a comedy tour in 2023.

Announcing the dates practically a year in advance, he had followers excited about his shows already. 

The international comedian and The Daily Show host will be performing in 12 shows as part of ‘Savanna Presents Trevor Noah Live in South Africa’ between August and September 2023.

The Hollywood star can't wait.

“I’ve been away from Mzansi stages for too long and so much has happened - I’m excited to be back in front of a home crowd,” Trevor says.

An excited Eugene Lenford, who is the marketing manager at Savana cider, says that they are thrilled to bring Trevor Noah back home to boost South African comedy.

“We can’t wait to have Trevor back for what is certain to be an amazing series of performances, and with Savanna as partners, we can’t think of a better match” says Natasha Dixon, Head of Marketing at Entertain.Africa, the tour promotors.
