Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” will be coming to the University of Massachusetts on April 12 on his “Loud and Clear” 2019 tour. The Mullins Center will host the event.

Since taking over for Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show,” Noah has become well-known for his witty and humorous takes on hot-button issues, including racism, politics and current events. His stand-up specials have garnered critical acclaim, earning him a 2017 Primetime Emmy Award.

According to the Mullins Center, there will be no age restriction for the show. Wine, beer and mixed drinks will be served at concession stands throughout the show at the “Section N Bar.” Tickets went on sale on Oct. 19 and are still available.

“I’m really excited that’s he’s coming to UMass,” said sophomore biology major Darshana Blaise. “I feel like this school pulls up really great performers, comedians, celebrities to come here, and he’s a breath of fresh of air [that] I think I’m going to need second semester.”

Blaise said that she has only seen small clips of Noah on “The Daily Show” and in his previous Netflix specials. This upcoming spring will be her first time seeing Noah live, and she plans on bringing her friends to the show.

“I think it’s an interesting choice and I’m excited to get see what he has to say,” said junior psychology and theater major Greg Ford.

Despite only seeing an “episode or two” of “The Daily Show,” Ford says that he will most likely go to the show with friends.

“I think that’s he’s really funny,” said Amari Boyd, an education graduate student, “and I think he’s able to engage in tough conversations about race through comedy, and I think that’s a tough thing to do – and he does it really well.”

Boyd, an avid fan of the Daily Show, has been following Noah since 2012. Her first time watching him was during his TV stand-up specials, while she was studying abroad in South Africa.

“I was surprised at how much I laughed. I think it was my first time, seeing stand-up about race in a different context, in a different country, so I didn’t think I would be able to get it, but I did!”

    Who cares. He has one of the lowest rated comedian shows. He is barely fun,.
