In the video, the Emmy-Award winner opened up about the poor condition of the Manpho Convention Centre and said, “Now, usually when I go to do a show backstage what happens is there will be like an entrance that you walk into and then you’re in the venue and then you emerge into a backstage area before you come and perform. Here, we walk through an alley that was full of dogs, half of which were in cages. I have never prepared for a show where the backstage area is dogs in cages.”
He added that the venue more or less resembled a “semi-permanent tent, with no screens and giant air-conditioners.”
Biocon chief Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw took a dig at the crumbling infrastructure of Bengaluru by sharing Noah’s video on X.
“Bangalore’s shambolic state has provided enough content for Trevor Noah’s future shows. If this does not wake up the administration then we have nothing to hope for,” she wrote.
