He may not have a name recognizable to most Americans, but the man newly-tapped to take over "The Daily Show" is trying to change that, one venue at a time.

Trevor Noah will perform five shows between April 17 through April 19, 2015 at Levity Live in West Nyack, New York.

April shows scheduled in the Washington, DC / Arlington, Virginia area are already sold out.  As of this posting tickets are still available for the New York shows.  From there Noah heads to California before embarking on an international tour which includes his native South Africa.

Noah made his debut in the United States in 2012 on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."  He will take over for Jon Stewart as host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" when Stewart steps down later this year.
