Trevor Noah is the favorite South African comedian who has sold more DVDs than any other standup on that continent. Fans recite his performances verbatim, share his clips globally, and have joined him in legions on Facebook and Twitter. Noah has hosted numerous television shows in South Africa, including the country’s music, television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival, and two seasons of his own late night talk show. He is also the subject of the award-winning film Township to the Stage which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa.
Noah had his U.S. television debut on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in January, which prompted multiple invitations to return and appear in signature sketches. He has been touring America with stand-up star Gabriel Iglesias playing to packed houses in the thousands, and headlining club venues winning over audiences at every stop. Along with an upcoming article in Newsweek, Noah will guest on NPR’s Talk of the Nation, and head to the Edinburgh Festival for a month long run of his one person show presented by icon Eddie Izzard.
