The now well renounced Trevor Noah’s career as a comedian started in the early 2000’s and it was as his career was starting to blow up when Jacob Zuma was elected as the president of South Africa. It is common practice that many comedians tell a lot of political jokes and it comes as no surprise that Trevor has a lot of Zuma jokes.
Actually, Trevor has become so synonymous with Zuma’s jokes that many developed the habit of looking to him for comment each time our former president did anything.
It is not surprising that many of us were questioning what Trevor will joke about the day that Zuma finally announced his much awaited resignation.
Although Zuma is gone, we doubt that Trevor will run out of good material. In any case, we still have the likes of Julius Malema, Bantu Holomisa, Mmusi Maimane and Floyd Shivambu just to name a few. Anyways Trevor is international now.
While the country was still adjusting to having a new South African president, comedian Trevor Noah has compiled a tribute of his past jokes to bid farewell to Jacob Zuma, who he’s dubbed the “president of jokes”.
The comedian, who is now based in the States and presents The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, shared a brief tweet saying he would miss the comedy material Jacob Zuma provided during his term.
Jacob Zuma has been part of most of Trevor’s shows from his first major show Daywalkerto There’s a Gupta on My Stoep.
