Popular comedian, Trevor Noah has announced a break from stand-up comedy for the rest of the year.
The comedian who recently headlined Global Citizen festival in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life said this on Wednesday.
Writing on his Twitter page, he revealed that he is suffering a damage to his vocal cord.
He, however, promised to come back stronger and work hard on rehabbing his voice.
Noah wrote: “Sad news that I don’t have a voice right now, I thought that my vocal cords were healed but according to the doctor, flying 36 hours and hosting a giant concert in South Africa didn’t help me.
“I hate canceling shows but I also hate the idea of losing my voice forever so I’m postponing all this year’s stand up shows.”
Noah, also a producer, political commentator, actor, and television host, is known for hosting The Daily Show, an American satirical news program on Comedy Central.
