Trevor Noah: Donald Trump Is ‘Comedy Cocaine’

9 May 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Late night comics have feasted on President Donald Trump, poking fun at his factually challenged proclamations, tortured syntax, and elaborate combover.

But “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah admits that there are risks involved with getting too addicted to Trump jokes.

“You’ve got to look at Donald Trump as comedy cocaine,” Noah said at Variety‘s Entertainment and Technology Summit in New York on Wednesday. “A bump now and again will get you to a nice place, but you don’t want to overdose.”

Noah said that Trump and his ability to swallow up the news cycle provides a seemingly inexhaustible amount of material for comics. Still, he and his writers frequently find themselves asking, “How much is enough?”

Because the presidency comes with so much power, anything Trump says or does reverberates across the globe.
