South African born stand-up comedian and Daily Show host Trevor Noah will return to perform at Yas Island’s du Forum on December 21, it was announced on Wednesday.

Noah performed at the du Forum to widespread acclaim last year, and due to popular demand added a second set to what was originally planned as a one-night performance.

For his work as the host of the wildly popular Daily Show, Noah was named “Best Host” at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, and received a Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.

In November 2016, Trevor released his first book “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” which went on to be a New York Times best-seller and is currently being made into a feature film starring Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.

Noah toured his first one man show in 2009, which he followed out with his second show, The Racist, which was sold-out at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.

Tickets to the upcoming Yas Island show will be available for sale on Ticketmaster starting on Thursday, September 6.
