Trevor Noah Is Coming To The Chicago Theatre For One Night Only

As is usually the case when big name comedy stars breeze through town, Chicagoans will have to get their clicking fingers ready: Trevor Noah is coming to the Chicago Theatre for one night only this spring, and tickets go on sale Friday.

Noah, the celebrated comedian and South African native who took over the helm at the Daily Show last year, recently premiered an hour-long special on Comedy Central. He'll be in town March 26. Tickets go on sale Feb. 5 at 11 a.m. at and 800-745-3000.

If you aren't a Daily Show fan, you may remember Noah from the time he told Spike Lee that he didn't want to visit Chicago because he doesn't "want to die." In light of Chicago's recent struggles with violence and police brutality, we might be ready to forgive the comment.
