Last December, I eagerly bought tickets to see Trevor Noah at the Hexagon. I’d seen him on the TV a few times and thought he would be a nice addition to the comedy gigs we see in town. Front row seats, bought ten months in advance.
Yesterday, the Hexagon box office called to tell me the gig had been cancelled. Obviously, I was concerned as gigs are usually cancelled because of poor health. I checked Trevor’s website and saw that all the tour dates had gone. No obvious reason. Strange.
Then I noticed his Twitter feed at the bottom talking about Trevor now hosting “The Daily Show”. So he knew ages ago that a big TV role was going to clash with his tour but decided to hold on until the show aired before cancelling the tour. Thanks a bunch.
Financially prudent to have a back-up but what a git.
