You Laugh But It’s True
Hub LA Members & Friends Screening
Wednesday, July 23 7:30PM
Screening followed by Q&A with director David Meyer
In the world of stand-up comedy in South Africa, a multiracial comedian creates material from his experiences during Apartheid as he prepares for the biggest show of his life.
South African comedian Trevor Noah uses his experiences as the child of a racially mixed couple during Apartheid--a time when interracial relationships were forbidden--as the lens for his sidesplitting comedy. In this intimate portrait, we meet an anxious Trevor as he is about to step onto the stage for his ﬁrst ever one-man show. Trevor faces a multitude of challenges: an underdeveloped comedy scene, criticism from other comics, lingering racial tension, and a shocking family tragedy. They pose a serious threat to the success of the show and to Trevor's dream of performing on the global stage.
Prodigious, audacious, acerbic, hilarious--there are many words to describe Trevor Noah, and this funny yet insightful documentary from ﬁrst-time director David Paul Meyer does it best.
