Daveed Diggs Performs His Own Material on The Tonight Show

The Hamilton Tony winner chatted with Jimmy Fallon to promote his new project White Noise.

Daveed Diggs is currently back onstage at The Public Theater (where he originated the roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson) in the world premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks's White Noise. He recently visited Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show set to promote the show, and while he was there he took the opportunity to perform a selection of his own material. Check out the conversation and performance below:

In addition to Diggs, White Noise stars Thomas Sadoski, Sheria Irving, and Zoë Winters. Public theater artistic director Oskar Eustis directs the production, which is set to open March 20 with performances beginning March 5. The run is scheduled to conclude on April 14.

White Noise is described as follows: "Longtime friends and lovers Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are educated, progressive, cosmopolitan, and woke. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides extreme measures must be taken for self-preservation."
