It has been a while. A bunch of staggering things have happened. Posts for comprehending the new reality are in abundance and yet there are needed more to come. My take is that the best drug will always be comedy. Without it probably real drugs would be unavoidable at least for my case. Hence watching Trevor Noah, the new host of the Daily Show, live here in Austin Bass Concert Hall was a relieving experience to contemplate the recent events. To be honest I was reluctant at first because I already follow his show at Comedy Central so I figured he would have nothing substantially novice to offer.
Turns out I was gravely wrong. He is extremely talented as stand-up comedian and his performance was well worth it. What I liked the most is his perspective on american reality from the eyes of a newcomer. Giving a fresh and hilarious point of view for all the customs and traditions that people here consider norm. His work with accents is commendable as well, never have I seen such a plethora in one hour. It goes without saying that the was political commentary from the liberal side of the aisle. I reckon that you can’t have a conservative comedian, they have to be either progressive of at least categorical of the establishment as a whole.
My highest recommendations as a whole. I can realize now why did people trusted him with the job of a TV host. Even from the second balcony I enjoyed every moment. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
