'The Daily Show With Trevor Noah' Set For Two-Week Road Trip To Cover GOP & Democratic National Conventions


“The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” is primed and ready to hit the road to cover the 2016 Republican and Democratic National Conventions, producing a special week of shows in each city. “The Daily Show’s” coverage of the 2016 RNC will be telecast from The Breen Center for the Performing Arts in Cleveland from Tuesday, July 19 through Friday, July 22 with coverage of the 2016 DNC telecast from the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia from Tuesday, July 26 through Friday, July 29. The two-week special convention coverage is scheduled to premiere nightly at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

“As someone who knows almost nothing about how American politics works, I look forward to spending two weeks with people just like me,” said Trevor Noah.

Tickets for the tapings are free and only available through dedicated “Daily Show” convention ticket websites and not through the host venues. Tapings in Cleveland will take place from July 19-22 at The Breen Center for the Performing Arts located at 2008 West 30th Street and can be requested via dailyshow.com/RNCtickets. Tapings in Philadelphia will take place from July 26-29 at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania which is located at 3680 Walnut Street and can be requested via dailyshow.com/DNCtickets.

This marks the 5th time the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series has gone on the road to cover the National Conventions and the 12th time the series has taken its critically-acclaimed election coverage on the road for a special week of episodes, having previously travelled to Philadelphia (2000 RNC), Los Angeles (2000 DNC), Boston (2004 DNC), Denver (2008 DNC), Minneapolis (2008 RNC), Tampa (2012 RNC) and Charlotte (2012 DNC) and to Washington, D.C.
