Trevor Noah, the renowned comedian and former host of ‘The Daily Show,’ is not one to rest on his laurels. Following his departure from the iconic late-night show in December, Noah embarked on a global stand-up tour, aptly named ‘Off the Record Tour.’ This tour not only marks a new chapter in his career but also forms the basis of his latest Netflix special, set to premiere on the platform on December 19, as announced exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter.
Titled ‘Where Was I,’ the hour-long special is a compilation of Noah’s humorous observations and experiences gathered during his recent travels. The special, which was filmed at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, promises to offer a blend of comedy and cultural commentary, ranging from amusing takes on foreign national anthems to the diverse cultural norms he encountered.
This special is directed by David Paul Meyer and represents Noah’s fourth collaboration with Netflix, following his previous successful specials ‘I Wish You Would,’ ‘Son of Patricia,’ and ‘Afraid of the Dark.’

In addition to his Netflix special, Noah has also ventured into the podcasting world with his new Spotify podcast, ‘What Now?
