You have to give Washington State University credit for booking South African stand-up Trevor Noah as the featured performer for Dad’s Weekend in Pullman. It would be easy to just book some classic-rock fixture to please the old dudes in the audience, but the occasionally edgy host of The Daily Show is a great choice, given his undeniable skill as a stand-up comic that helped him land one of the highest-profile gigs on television, and due to the rapidly impending (thank God) Election Day just four days after the show. I imagine that Noah will have a few things to say about this year’s candidates.
