Trevor Noah and JFL NorthWest in this week’s Georgia Straight


Every week our friends at The Georgia Straight provide us with a preview of what you’ll see on – and in – their paper that week. They are the source for lifestyle and entertainment in our city and along with their robust online presence they’ve always released a print edition, distributed everywhere each Thursday.


The cover this week is Trevor Noah and the JFL Northwest comedy festival: In the Straight’s exclusive interview before JFL NorthWest, the Daily Show host talks politics, race, and the curiosities of America; plus, Big Jay Oakerson, Nick Thune, and more.
