When Jon Stewart, funnyman turned news anchor of the people, announced his departure from Comedy Central’s The Daily Show last year, he left some pretty big shoes to fill. The task fell to Trevor Noah, who has done his best to measure up while covering a crazier-than-fiction election cycle too absurd for even seasoned showrunners to dream up for the small screen. Fans of Noah’s hot takes on news of the day won’t want to miss his new show, Lost in Translation, when it comes to Comerica Theatre on Friday, tackling everything from police brutality (and how not to get shot as a black man) to the Ebola outbreak.
The comedian comes out from behind the desk for a night of stand-up starting at 8 p.m. on October 14 at 400 West Washington Street. Tickets, available through Live Nation, range from $35 to $55. To get yours, call 602-379-2888 or click www.comericatheatre.com.
