Perhaps no other late-night comic has articulated the absurdity of the so-called “trans panic epidemic” better than The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah. In an episode that aired earlier this year, Noah lambasted supporters of the many anti-LGBT “bathroom bills” being proposed around the country. “If you replace ‘transgender’ with any other group in society, you realize that we’ve been here before,” Noah said. “We’ve had this conversation about minorities before … Society has done this over and over again. The same thing was said about black people … We cannot think of why anyone wouldn’t have wanted multi-racial bathrooms.” An offshoot of his one-hour Comedy Central special covering “everything from terrorism to police brutality to Ebola to his grandmother,” Noah — who was notably the first South African stand-up to appear on The Tonight Show and the Late Show with David Letterman — brings his Lost in Translation Tour to the Tobin.
