Storyline

Celebrated as the most popular comedian in South Africa, Trevor Noah takes the stage in "African American" to explore his often-bewildering journey of arriving in America and simply wanting to be "black." Noah shares his perspective of growing up a mixed-race child under Apartheid, and fearlessly breaks down racial stereotypes on all sides by becoming what Newsweek calls a "cultural chameleon."

Had some jokes from previous shows.
7 November 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

This was the fourth show I saw from Trevor Noah. The first shows were in his country, South-Africa, and so not all his jokes were understandable if you were not from South-Africa yourself as he sometimes spoke in Sudafrikaans. This show is in America and so it was much easier to follow. Trecor Noah has non-offensive but also non politically correct jokes. His vocal impressions are also good as he can handle any accent he wants. There are no pauzes in his shows as he is a waterfall of words, all with a touch of good humor. The only problem I had with this show is that he used jokes and passages from previous shows, so sometimes you have a déjà-vu. I think every show should be completely new. But besides that Trevor Noah: African American is easy fun entertainment.
