More laughs await audiences with international comedians set to perform on 15 August

Audiences roar with laughter during the first instalment of Doha Comedy Festival featuring comedian Trevor Noah, organised by Social Studio, as the South African comedian brought his unique perspective to a cross-cultural audience.

The show was held at Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) and part of the bigger Summer in Qatar programme.

On his second visit to Doha, Noah toured the recently opened National Museum of Qatar, before taking the stage at the QNCC.  Through his set, the comedian connected with the diverse crowd, with jokes tailored to various cultures. Tickets for the performance were sold out in advance. The show sold over 3,700 tickets.
