SA-born comedian Trevor Noah is offering fans a chance to be interviewed by him on the set of The Daily Show as part of his charity work and campaign to raise R4-million for girl’s education.
Trevor started a crowdfunding page for the initiative last week and has so far raised over R191,000. He has promised to match any donations rand-for-rand up to R2-million.
Trevor shared information about the initiative at the Global Citizen Festival over the weekend and got a pledge of $50-million from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Trevor is not letting up on his efforts to raise funds and launched a competition for people to win an epic trip to New York to appear on the show as a guest.
Here’s a full list of what you can win:
• Hang out with Trevor Noah and sit down for a one-on-one interview with him after a taping of The Daily Show.
• Score two VIP tickets to the show and watch Trevor’s take on the day’s most newsworthy topics from the best seats in the house.
• Enjoy exclusive green room access and explore Comedy Central’s World News Headquarters with a behind-the-scenes tour
• Flights to NYC and stay in a 4-star hotel
Donations start at $10 (R138) for 100 entries into the draw and goes up to $500 (R6,890) for 5,000 entries.
If you don’t rate your chances and competitions aren’t your thing, you can always donate and get rewards like a signed The Daily Show script, a signed copy of Trevor’s book Born a Crime and a personalised video from Trevor.
