President Barack Obama was in New York this week to facilitate a democracy forum for his foundation, The Obama Foundation with young future leaders. The forever POTUS paid a visit on the Daily Show to talk to Trevor Noah about a range of things from democracy, midterm elections, the youth vote and his party Democrats vs Republicans (the GOP).
“Democracy requires, by definition, getting along with people who don’t agree with you.” Former President Barack Obama discusses why he believes the youth turnout made all the difference in Democratic victories these midterms, how globalization, disinformation and the media infrastructure are contributing to the weakening of democracy globally, and what advice he has for Trevor after The Daily Show. #DailyShow #Comedy”
The outgoing host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” has lined up his first major post-hosting gig. On Monday, he announced his 2023 Off the Record Tour, a 28-city stand-up comedy run that will launch in January, mere weeks after he signs off his news-satire program.
Noah, whose final “Daily Show” episode is set for Dec. 8, will kick off his tour at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Jan. 20, tour producer Live Nation said.
“It’s time,” Noah said. “I realized there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring. I miss learning other languages. I miss going to other countries and putting on shows. I miss just being everywhere, doing everything.”
The “Born a Crime” author has also booked another Netflix original comedy special, “I Wish You Would,” which is set to begin streaming on the platform on Nov. 22. His previous special, 2018’s “Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia,” received an NAACP Image Award and a Grammy nomination.
