Off The Record Tour
Trevor Noah is one of the most successful comedians in the world and was the host of the Emmy® Award-winning “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central for seven years. Under Trevor, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” broke free from the restraints of a 30-minute linear show, producing engaging social content, award-winning digital series, podcasts and more for its global audience. Last year, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” landed a record number of seven Emmy Award nominations.
Trevor is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” and its young readers adaptation, released in 2019, “It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which also debuted as a New York Times bestseller. The Audible edition of “Born a Crime,” performed by Trevor, was produced by Audible and remains one of the top-selling, highest-rated, and most-commented-on Audible performances of all time. To date, “Born a Crime” has sold over 3 million copies across all formats.
Following the extraordinary success of “Born a Crime,” Trevor is writing a new book titled “Into the Uncut Grass” for One World (an imprint of the Random House Group, a division of Penguin Random House LLC). The book is scheduled for release in 2024 and is a gorgeously illustrated and moving modern fable for readers of all ages about forgiveness, acceptance, and the secret to solidarity.
Trevor will be hosting an original Spotify weekly podcast later this year. Currently untitled, the podcast will blend Noah’s signature humor and razor-sharp wit with his global perspective to deliver a unique take on the hottest and most captivating topics of the moment. The series will also feature in-depth interviews between Noah and some of the most influential and interesting figures around the world.
Launching in early 2024, Trevor is set to host Amazon Prime Video’s first South African original, “LOL: Last One Laughing.” The six-part unscripted comedy series will see Trevor pit 10 famous South African comedians and entertainers against one another to see who can keep a straight face while simultaneously trying to make their opponents laugh – and lose. Trevor is also moving from in front of the camera to a behind-the-scenes turn as executive producer on the newly announced Amazon FreeVee remake of the long-running British Series, “Mock the Week.” The half-hour program combines elements from talk shows, stand-up comedy sessions and improv games that sets two teams of comics against each other in a bid to satirize current news events and popular culture. The series will begin production for the US in 2024.
Trevor served as the Grammy Awards host for three years in a row, with the 2023 show garnering the highest viewership numbers since 2020. Noah is a Grammy nominee himself. His standup special “Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia” was nominated for best comedy album at the 2020 Grammys.
Trevor's success has also spanned to sold out stand-up comedy shows over 5 continents. His recently announced “Off The Record” World Tour stops in 28 cities across the US, before heading for international destinations. Trevor’s “Back To Abnormal Tour” saw him sell out multiple nights at the O2 Arena in London, perform across Europe including selling the most tickets ever by a non-German in Frankfurt, Germany, as well as Madison Square Garden, The LA Forum, two shows at the Chase Center in San Francisco and ended his run with two sold out shows at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Trevor has written, produced, and starred in 12 comedy specials, including Emmy-nominated “I Wish You Would,” his third for Netflix, which premiered globally in November 2022. True to form, Trevor hilariously shares revelations about learning to speak German, modern communication, and his love for curry. His previous special, “Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia” received a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Variety Show, as well as a Grammy Award nomination.
Day Zero Productions, a joint venture between Paramount Global and Trevor Noah, develops and produces diverse, high-quality creative content for a global audience. With projects set up both within the Paramount Global family, as well as at other studios, streamers, and live platforms, Day Zero focuses on entertaining and impactful content, with an eye toward authentic stories from diverse points of view. The company announced it is developing a series based on Kiese Laymon’s coming-of-age novel “Long Division.” Other current projects include an adaptation of Noah’s best-selling and award-winning autobiography “Born A Crime,” with Lupita Nyong’o starring and a reimagining of the classic Paramount feature President’s Analyst. On the television side, recent unscripted credits include the documentary series “The Turning Point” for MSNBC/Peacock, and Nickelodeon’s annual “Kid of the Year” TV special alongside TIME Studios.
In 2018, Noah launched the Trevor Noah Foundation to improve equitable access to quality education for underserved youth in South Africa. Noah's vision is a world where education enables youth to dream, see and build the impossible.
