Readers of this blog are probably aware that I’m a big fan of Trevor Noah. He’s a master at embedding relevant social commentary into his jokes. His “immigrant experience” routines are hilarious and accurate in his observations. His past Netflix specials (You Laugh But It’s True, Afraid of the Dark) and his continued presence as The Daily Show host show how he views many social and political issues through a different viewpoints. His commentary makes me think about the actual issue even if I don’t have a particular position to the issue.
Netflix recently released a new stand up “Son of Patricia” shortly before Thanksgiving. Watch it. It’s great.
In other news, The Daily Show has had a podcast since the start of the year. Since I watch his show on Youtube, this podcast is actually pretty awesome. It summarizes the 30 minute TV episode into shorter 20 minutes segments. It’s great for listening on short drives.
