Trevor Noah: I Wish You Would
Comedy / Documentary.
In his third special show, comedian Trevor Noah talks learning German, speaking ill of the dead, judging people in horror movies, dealing with modern communication, and ordering Indian food in Scotland.
And I really, really loved his old stand-up. A new, fresh perspective on things. New stories, new takes. Exciting stuff.
I didn’t have big expectations going into this, but most of this is regurgitated older material of his loosely strung together and it feels lazy. Maybe it’s that he’s too much in his bubble and has writers for his jokes on the show. Maybe he had a three-show deal with Netflix and just had to get it over with.
My guess is, the guy’s burnt out.
And I’m sure he’ll come back strong, once he’s stopped doing the Daily Show.
