He’s brilliant. He’s worldly. He’s disarmingly funny. In other words, he’ll fill Jon Stewart’s Daily Show throne just fine. Growing up the child of an illegal mixed-race relationship in apartheid South Africa, Trevor Noah built a comedy career on his left-leaning politics and a willingness to speak sarcastic truth to power. In his home country, he became well-known as a host of radio and TV programs, and soon was carrying a series of hour-long comedy specials. So when he moved to the US in 2011, he was more than ready to take on the world. After breaking barriers on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman as both programs’ first South African comedian, he starred in the biopic documentary You Laugh But It’s True. It was December 2014 that he was fatefully tapped as a recurring contributor to The Daily Show—and just four months later Comedy Central announced he’d take over the desk.
The Palace Theatre
The Palace Theatre was hailed as "Connecticut's Most Magnificent" when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. Today, audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony, the Ballet School of Stamford, comedians, and musical acts.
