According to a Facebook post from the Illinois State Fair, Trevor Noah is going to be headlining at the State Fair grandstand, in the post they say...

"JUST ANNOUNCED Comedian and host of "The Daily Show" Trevor Noah will headline the Illinois Lottery Grandstand on August 19th! Tickets on sale Thursday, June 23rd!"

Trevor Noah is the current host of the Daily Show on Comedy Central and is known for his political humor, but he has also had a long successful stand-up comedy career, here is a YouTube video of some of his stand-up. (Be warned there is some NSFW language in this video)

I got to be honest I don't really watch the Daily Show, never did even when it was Jon Stewart, but that being said I am a huge fan of stand-up comedy and Trevor Noah does some really great stand-up. What I appreciate about his stand-up compared to his comedy on the Daily Show is that on the Daily Show he has to be political because that is the subject matter the show is tackling, but in his stand-up comedy he doesn't have to do political humor and so there is a bunch of different things he talks about and jokes about.
