Trevor Noah to perform campus comedy show

After a touring hiatus following vocal chord damage, Trevor Noah will perform a comedy show 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at the NIU Convocation Center.

After a long wait, stand up comedian and “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah will come to the Convocation Center.

The performance will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 12 with ticket prices starting at $25.50, according to the Convocation Center’s webpage. 

Noah was originally scheduled to arrive in DeKalb Nov. 10, 2018, but pushed his appearance back to Dec. 9, 2018 after he bruised his vocal chords, according to the Ticket News website. After he said his chords didn’t heal in time for the second show, Noah pushed the appearance to an unspecified date in 2019, according to NIU’s calendar page, which resulted in tickets being refunded.

 “I hate canceling shows, but I also hate the idea of losing my voice forever, so I’m postponing all this year’s stand up shows and working hard on rehabbing the voice,” Noah wrote in a Dec. 4 Facebook post.
