In case you didn’t see it, Grandmaster Maurice Ashley made an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, the South African comedian known for his biting, politically-charged satire. Ashley had tweeted his appearance on the show and showed his excitement. Certainly chess would be at the center of the discussion.
Chess has struggled to get mainstream acceptance, but is often used in metaphors for everyday life. What they don’t know is that Ashley has attempted to make chess exciting and entertaining to follow with his unique brand of energy and flair. The segment couldn’t go without some barbs thrown. Take a look!
