Trevor Noah: Comical or Offensive?

In this country, we tend to find humor in everything from actions of racial and special interest groups to the infliction of pain through such things as a slap cameras or pranks that embarrass others, but very few have the knowledge to provide conversations on serious subjects in a comical manner. Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, and Bill Maher have been able to discuss many issues within American culture that many of us avoid discussing because we find it uninteresting or the difference in opinions from our own terrifies us. Trevor Noah falls in this category of comediennes making him the perfect candidate for succeeding Mr. Jon Stewart.

Trevor Noah is a South African actor and comedian. He has had a few appearances on “The Daily Show”, comedy tours and special taped performances here in the states. Since this racial commentator has had minimal exposure in the United States and has already had the pleasure of having distasteful tweets that were posted back in 2012 resurface due to many people not viewing him as a viable host of the premier show on Comedy Central. The truth of the matter is the tweets were in fact offensive, as he commented on such things as almost hitting a Jewish person while driving a German automobile although he was simply pointing out the “irony” of the situation. The comments just like the others were insensitive, but does this mean that he should not be the host of “The Daily Show” because of his bold statements?

These posts on twitter were not a part of Trevor Noah’s brightest moments, but like Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah is a satirist. Every joke and comment is for the purpose of discussing the treatment of people throughout history and in the current day as he has made jokes in reference to the issue of police brutality, poverty, the ideas of weight that surrounds America, and the countless other topics. Unfortunately, jokes based on racial groups tend to be entertaining, but also allows the introduction of controversial topics while creating a safe place. At this point in time Comedy Central is standing behind their decision of having Trevor Noah as the host of “The Daily Show”. As socially sensitive beings it must be understood that humor is the least offensive way to converse about any offensive subject and is used by practically every comedian that has a stereotype or truth to share.
