Here Is Why Many Believe Trevor Noah Is Not Funny – Many people claim that Trevor Noah is not funny for multiple reasons. While some people believe that he always brings politics, others claim that his jokes are anti-Semitic.

Trevor Noah has been on the road a lot lately. Since retiring from The Daily Show as host last year, the comedian has been hopping between continents to perform standup in some of the world’s biggest and most fascinating places, including Berlin, Tokyo, Glasgow, and Paris.

Unsurprisingly, his travels have provided him with additional material to work with, much of which he tackles in his new Netflix special, Trevor Noah: Where Was I, which premiered on December 19.

Of course, not everyone is fond of Trevor Noah. Over the years, many people have claimed that they don’t find him funny for many reasons. Well, let’s discuss it in detail.

‘Trevor Noah Is Not Funny’ Claims Many Reddit and Quora Users

Trevor Noah (@trevornoah) has to be one of the most popular comedians of the last decade. His style and humor of expressing things have made all of us laugh, sometimes uncontrollably. There is a reason his latest comedy special, Where Was I, is his fourth collaboration with Netflix. However, some people claim that Trevor Noah is not funny at all.

Over the years, a lot of people have criticized him, both as an individual comedian and the former host of The Daily Show. People have given more than enough reasons why they think he is not funny.

Taking to a Reddit discussion, one user wrote,

His jokes are pretty cringe and corny. Compare his monologues to Colbert and others and it’s pretty apparent that his content is very behind the curve. I know it’s partly his writers too but his delivery is just very sub par as well

In the same post, a user expressed that he is into political dramas rather than solely focusing on making people laugh. The user wrote,

He’s more of a political commentator than a comedian. I never thought he was funny.

If you watched him while he was on The Daily Show, you might agree with this user’s claim that he mostly brings politics. Similarly, a Quora user explained why he thinks Trevor Noah isn’t funny writing,

As for specific reasons Noah is not considered funny, he put a lot of viewers off with anti-Semitic jokes, or jokes with anti-Semitic undertones. He also had a yuge over-reliance on Donald Trump material! That’s not funny, it’s just a mindless echo chamber – almost the lowest level of entertainment. The problem there is The Daily Show viewers tend to be slightly more educated, and so that’s not going to automatically cut it.

Well, comedy is subjective. Some might find him funny, some might not. It is totally up to you. However, we cannot deny the fact that people go crazy when they hear that he is performing. After all, he is all set to host The Grammy Awards for the fourth consecutive year for a reason.

Does Trevor Noah Have a Girlfriend?

As of this writing, it’s unknown whether or not Trevor Noah has a girlfriend. The 39-year-old star keeps a very low profile. While most of his former dating life is public knowledge, including Dani Gabriel, Jordyn Taylor, and Minka Kelly, his current relationship status remains a mystery.

According to Parade, Trevor is currently single; nevertheless, he could be in a serious relationship and has not disclosed it publicly. In a 2019 interview with Howard Stern, the TV celebrity discussed why he prefers to avoid the tabloids. “I gravitate towards real people in life,” he explained at the time.
