Comedian Jaboukie Young-White, a correspondent for “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” will perform at William & Mary Feb. 8.

Sponsored by Alma Mater Productions and the W&M Student Assembly, the show will begin at 8 p.m. in the Sadler Center’s Commonwealth Auditorium. Tickets will be sold the day of the show at the door, which opens at 7 p.m. Tickets are $3 for students, $5 for faculty and staff and $10 for the public.

In addition to his work on “The Daily Show,” Young-White has performed on “The Tonight Show” and recently taped a half-hour special for “Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents.” He has appeared on HBO’s “Crashing” and in the featured films “Rough Night” and “Set It Up.” Previously, he served as a staff writer for Netflix’s “American Vandal” and “Big Mouth.”

He was named a comic to watch at the 2017 New York Comedy Festival and among Vulture/New York Magazine’s “Comedians You Should and Will Know.” Rolling Stone also named him among its “25 Under 25,” and Variety counted him among “10 Comics to Watch.”

The performance will take place during William & Mary’s annual Charter Day weekend, which celebrates the university’s founding by royal charter in 1693. The Charter Day ceremony is slated to take place at 4 p.m. Feb. 7 in Kaplan Arena. A carnival will follow at 5 p.m.
