We thought we’d lost another great talent to the United States, but it seems Trevor Noah has not abandoned Mzansi altogether. He’s had his hands full, picking 13 of South Africa’s brightest young comedians for his 13-part comedy showcase NationWild. “I’m really excited for Mzansi audiences to discover their new favourite comedians,” he enthuses.
Considering that African comedians like David Kibuuka and Loyiso Madinga have already appeared with Trevor on The Daily Show, anything is possible next for the lucky 13. Each episode features a short introductory set by Trevor as the host, an interview with the featured comedian about their ladder to success, followed by that comedian’s set.
