Sure it's cool that the Democratic National Convention at the end of July is supposed to pump millions of dollars into the local Philadelphia economy.
But that's just money.
What's cooler is that Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be on the trail of the DNC and will set up shop at the Annenberg Center's Zellerbach Theatre on the Penn campus (3680 Walnut St.) for a week of shows, Tuesday July 26 through Friday July 29.
Tickets for the tapings are free and can be requested at dailyshow.com/DNCtickets. Penn students have access to a special ticket lottery April 14-28, offering 800 students guaranteed seats and VIP entry.
"The University of Pennsylvania is proud to welcome The Daily Show to our campus during the Democratic National Convention. We hope visitors, students, and local residents will enjoy the show and be part of this exciting event," said Craig R. Carnaroli, Executive Vice President of the University of Pennsylvania.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs Mondays through Thursdays at 11:00 p.m. on Comedy Central and is available to stream the following day on thedailyshow.com and the Comedy Central App.
