R4 gets to Noah good comic

South African's stand-up show to air

Trevor Noah’s acclaimed stand-up show The Racist is to be recorded for Radio 4.

The South African comic scored a hit in Edinburgh last summer, after Eddie Izzard helped him come to the Fringe.

His show featured tales of growing up under apartheid as the son of a black African mother and a white Swiss father, as well as wider stand-up material, and attracted a slew of four-star reviews (read Chortle’s here.)

The BBC say: ‘His sharp wit, intelligent commentary, unmistakable charm and clinical delivery have established him as an extremely popular performer with undoubted world class potential.’

The show will be recorded on Sunday in front of a studio audience in London, where Noah is performing a run of The Racist until January 19.
