Noah announced the news with a special video message on Comedy Central social media sites in Africa at 16:00 CAT on Tuesday 14 February.

Commented Dillon Khan, Senior Channel Director, Comedy Central, Africa, “This is stand-up comedy on a scale never seen from a local comedian in this country, and by far the biggest MUST WATCH stand-up comedy event of the year.

Commented Ryan Harduth, Show Producer, “We’re going all out from a production standpoint to create the best comedy experience The TicketPro Dome has ever seen! We will be showcasing local and international opening acts to support Trevor, and we’re incredibly excited to share this show with our audiences.”
