The Daily Show comedian correspondent Desi Lydic on Comedy Central (DStv 122) got her own hour-long special looking at gender equality and travelling internationally as countries like Namibia in Africa and others have passed the United States as better places for women to live.
Desi Lydic: Abroad will become available on Tuesday 14 May in full on the cc.com website after it's broadcast on 13 May in America. A possible broadcast date for Desi Lydic: Abroad on Comedy Central Africa on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV service isn't known yet.
Trevor Noah is one of the executive producers of Desi Lydic: Abroad that sees her travel around the globe to countries where the situation for women are in some aspects better than in the United States when it comes to gender equality.
Desi Lydic, a professionally trained improvisational and comedic actress, joined The Daily Show as a correspondent in September 2015 when Trevor Noah took over as host of The Daily Show.
On her global visit, Desi Lydic sets out to explore how and why the United States has fallen so far behind much of the world when it comes to women and education, economics, health and politics, with countries like Iceland (1), Namibia (13) and Spain (24) that all rank higher than America (49) when it comes to gender equality.
Desi Lydic: Abroad is executive produced by Desi Lydic and Trevor Noah, Khoby Rowe, Steven Fisher, Jen Flanz and Jill Katz.
