South African funnyman Trevor Noah is set to make a big splash in the cable news game, but first, we spotted him with comedic legend Jerry Seinfeld. Find out what they were up to inside…
Earlier today, we spotted comedic legend Jerry Seinfeld strolling through DUMBO in Brooklyn, New York with South African funnyman Trevor Noah for his YouTube show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”.
Although Trevor has not ascended to “The Daily Show” seat yet, he’s already facing heavy scrutiny from the media and his fellow comedians. A NY Times article from a few days ago quoted Canadian comedian Russell Peters calling Trevor a thief, claiming he’s stolen material from himself and South African comic David Kau. And that’s not all, Trevor’s also come under fire for allegedly anti-Semitic tweets from years ago (folks have been searching through EVERY tweet). Sigh….and he hasn’t landed in the chair yet!
Following their coffee chat, Trevor and Jerry met up with fellow-comedic great Larry David at the home opener for the New York Mets at Citi Field. Their very public meeting is interesting since Larry and Jerry are two of the most well-respected comedians in the game…and they’re Jewish. It’s great to see Trevor is building a network of support.
