Press release from Comedy Central, Aug. 7, 2018:
As the Midterm races heat up, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will head to Florida, a state that highlights many of 2018’s most important election issues. The late-night series will film a week of shows “undesked” from The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater and air nightly from Monday, October 29 through Thursday, November 1 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater is located at 1700 Washington Ave in Miami Beach, FL. Tickets for the tapings are free and will be available only through The Daily Show at www.dailyshow.com/miami, not through the venue’s box office.
This marks the 15th time the series has taken its coverage on the road for a special week of episodes. The Daily Show’s most recent trip was to Chicago in October 2017, which was the first time it filmed a week of shows “undesked,” thus, without an anchor desk.
Trevor Noah, Steve Bodow, Jen Flanz and Jill Katz are the Executive Producers of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, with Justin Melkmann as Co-Executive Producer, and David Kibuuka and Zhubin Parang as producers. Max Browning, Eric Davies, Pam DePace, Ramin Hedayati and Elise Terrell are Supervising Producers. Dan Amira is the Head Writer, with Lauren Sarver Means and Daniel Radosh as Senior Writers. The series is directed by Paul Pennolino. Sarah Babineau and Ari Pearce are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs Mondays-Thursdays at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central and is available to stream the following day exclusively on thedailyshow.com and the Comedy Central App. Viewers can follow The Daily Show on Twitter (7.6M followers) and Instagram (1.3M followers), subscribe to its YouTube channel (3.4M subscribers) and become a fan of The Daily Show on Facebook (7.8M fans).
