Trevor Noah has confirmed that he signed a deal with M-Net for a new TV show that will be aired in 2018. The 13-part series aims to “showcase young talent” and will see Trevor take the helm and guide up and coming comedians.
Trevor said he has always wanted to grow comedy in South Africa.”I remember when I was young, watching really amazing shows and at the time, it was a lot of Afrikaans comedians. It was the Tolla van der Merwes and all of them. They were telling jokes together. There was a culture of comedy in South Africa. There was a conversation that was happening in a space where people were getting to know funniness from home.”
