Sugar Land continues to be a funny place.
Since the Smart Financial Centre opened in January, the new arena has been a magnet for top comedians, including Jerry Seinfeld, who was the debut performer, and Bill Maher. The latest to stake a claim is The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, who brings his stand-up act featuring tales from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa, along with political musings, to the suburban Houston arena on November 10.
Noah debuted his ninth comedy special, Afraid of the Dark, on Netflix last month. His first book, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, was a New York Times bestseller last fall and his performance on the audiobook was Audible's highest rated audiobook of 2016.
