Trevor Noah is a storyteller, and he seems to do it with a kind of compulsion. In addition to hosting “The Daily Show,” the day job that he inherited from Jon Stewart in 2015, Noah is constantly touring with his stand-up, producing specials for Comedy Central and Netflix. Even during commercial breaks at “The Daily Show,” he’s still talking, taking audience questions and spinning them into quick-witted mini-sagas that get uploaded to the show’s YouTube channel. Most of the stories display the sharp political insights he’s best known for, cannily taking apart some news item or outrageous governmental policy development (fodder that, in 2019, he’s sure to never run out of). But Noah doesn’t limit his scope, even behind his “Daily Show” desk, and spins yarns about his childhood in South Africa and his life in New York with chatty enthusiasm. Last year, Noah told so many stories that he strained his vocal chords. “This is the only time I’m allowed to speak during the day,” he told a “Daily Show” audience in December. “You guys are like my prison visitation right now.” Maybe it was the frustration of losing his voice that inspired Noah to call his new stand-up tour “Trevor Noah: Loud and Clear” — a whole new batch of stories that he gets to tell and we get to hear. Tickets for the lawn at the AMP are $30, and seats in the stands start at $75.
