The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has indicated he would like to visit Aboriginal communities during his upcoming Australian tour, days after the resurfacing of a 2013 stand-up routine in which Noah insults the appearance of Aboriginal women.

In a tweet to former rugby player Joe Williams, who first highlighted the routine, Noah said he is “always open to learning more” about the lives of Indigenous Australians.

Williams then tweeted at Noah asking him to reach out to arrange a meeting. PEDESTRIAN.TV has contacted Williams for further comment.

Noah’s message comes after he faced widespread criticism for the routine, which specifically disparaged Aboriginal women.

The clip, which was pulled from his It’s My Culture special, features Noah saying that all women are beautiful.

“And I know some of you are sitting there now going, ‘Oh Trevor, yeah, but I’ve never seen a beautiful Aborigine,'” he said.

“Yeah, but you know what you say? You say ‘yet’, that’s what you say; ‘yet’. Because you haven’t seen all of them, right?”

Noah then mimicked the sound of a didgeridoo in an apparent joke about oral sex.

The clip was roundly criticised by members of Australia’s Indigenous community and others angered by the offensive comments.

Prominent author and academic Dr Anita Heiss has called for fans to boycott Noah’s August tour.

Radio presenter Dr Chelsea Bond has also spoken about her distinct disappointment upon seeing the routine, considering Noah’s history of championing black women like his South African mother.

While not directly apologising for the comments, Noah issued a tweet saying he “vowed never to make a joke like that again.”

His tour is expected to begin in Melbourne on August 23.
