Trevor Noah Bio

Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah is possibly South Africa’s most well-known comedian, and has beaten the odds in his rise to fame. Noah was born a mixed-race child to a white father and black mother in 1984 during apartheid, when there were measures in South Africa that legally separated races. The population was classified into four groups: white, Indian, coloured, and black, and black people were stripped of their South African citizenship from 1970 until the 1990s.

Noah had a somewhat circuitous path getting to where he is, first acting in a South African soap opera and then hosting various radio and TV shows before dedicating his life to comedy. Once he moved to comedy full-time, Noah gained exposure by opening for international comedians Russell Peters and Gabriel Iglesias.

Trevor Noah performances draw on his experience growing up in his hometown and dealing with race and ethnicity. In January 2012, Noah made history by becoming the first South African comedian to appear on The Tonight Show and continued to draw attention to his comedy in the U.S. by appearing on Chelsea Lately.

Unfortunately, I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Trevor Noah live, but after watching Day Walker, I simply HAVE to! Trevor Noah is the epitome of South African comedy, and one can only really appreciate his humour once you’ve stepped foot in the lovely SA. There are very few moments that one doesn’t laugh when hearing him speak, and if there is one – it’s simply because you’re not breathing from laughing so hard. He throws race, culture and stereotypes around in a way that isn’t offensive to any racial groups which makes his shows even more enjoyable – EVERYONE is included, and EVERYONE is laughed at.
