Last year, Trevor Noah compared President Donald Trump to cancer during the inaugural Barbara Berlanti Heroes Gala benefitting Fuck Cancer. Also in 2018, Noah landed a role in the record-breaking Marvel blockbuster Black Panther. OK, so The Daily Show host may not have yet gotten any real facetime on the big screen. (He was an uncredited voice of the sleek A.I. used by the protector of Wakanda.) But seeing that the 35-year-old pundit, New York Times bestselling author, and successor to Jon Stewart cut his teeth in comedy, Noah will be just at home standing up as he is taking on the Cheeto-in-Chief from behind the desk.

Trevor Noah will perform starting at 7:30 and 10 p.m. on Friday, April 26, at the Fox Theatre; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-6611; 313presents.com. Tickets are $35.
