Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

He now lives in Los Angeles, where he is a comedian, though he looks like he should be skippering a sailing regatta. With performances on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and the New Faces showcase at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, Andy is becoming a must see performer.
Mike Drucker is a stand-up comedian and writer currently writing for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He graduated from New York University with a Master's Degree in English Literature--his thesis is about parody novels in Victorian England. Ask him about it some time if you're bored or need boring.

He is also the subject of the award-winning film Township to the Stage which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. Noah had his U.S. television debut on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in January, which prompted multiple invitations to return and appear in signature sketches. He toured America with stand-up star Gabriel Iglesias playing to packed houses in the thousands, and headlined club venues winning over audiences at every stop. Noah presented his one man show "The Racist" at the 21012 Edinburgh Fringe (presented by icon Eddie Izzard) in a sold out run that became the buzz of audiences and journalists. Along with a recent article in Newsweek, Noah was a guest on NPR's Talk of the Nation, and is guesting on the BBC Radio's Front Row. Having just completed an unprecedented three month run across South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, Noah is appearing in a six week sold out run at London's Soho Theater.
