Trevor Noah and Idris Elba teamed up for a hilarious sketch on one of the latest episodes of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
The British actor was a celebrity guest on the late-night comedy show, presumably as part of his media tour for The Dark Tower, his latest blockbuster film. If you believe the critics, Elba’s acting in the film is excellent, but that’s nothing compared to what he brought to The Daily Show.

After breaking the ice with a few questions, Trevor put his guest on the spot by revealing that he had written a script for a very specific scene. He offered to mimick Idris’ voice, while the actor would have to act along using nothing but his facial expressions.
The end-result was too hilarious to put into words but let’s just say the three-minute clip below is enough to make you fall in love with these two as a duo
I could watch Trevor Noah interview Idris Elba every day. So funny. #DailyShow
