Early Life

Noah was born in Soweto, South Africa, on February 20, 1984, to a Black Xhosa mother and a white Swiss-German father. Due to the country’s apartheid system, which officially sanctioned racial oppression and segregation, the couple’s union was illegal. Despite his parents’ efforts to keep their relationship private, Noah’s mother was frequently imprisoned for short periods of time, and a young Noah was frequently hidden from authorities. Some of his childhood experiences, such as the deep poverty his family endured, would become the subject of Noah’s comedic work, which frequently examined the racial dynamics of his native country.

After appearing in a soap opera in his late teens, Noah began to hone his skills as a comedian in his twenties, taking to the stage on a dare from friends. Noah’s skill and talent grew, and he became one of the country’s leading stand-up comedians. Noah’s peers noted that the young performer, who can speak several languages fluently and effortlessly imitate accents, had lofty career goals.

International Stand-Up Star 

Noah directed The Daywalker, a one-man show that was also filmed as a documentary, and hosted The South African Music Awards in 2009. Tonight With Trevor Noah, the comedian’s own talk show, premiered on M-Net and Mzansi Magic in 2010.

Noah staged another one-man show, The Racist, at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe festival after performing stand-up in the United States. That same year, he made his American television debut on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, becoming the first South African comedian to appear on the show. The following year, Noah had his own Showtime comedy special, Trevor Noah: African American. Noah also made his debut as a correspondent for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in late 2014.

Appointed ‘Daily Show’ Host

Stewart announced his departure from The Daily Show in February 2015, and Noah was announced as his replacement in March. Noah had previously appeared on the show three times.

Questions arose about how the show might change with a new international host at the helm. Some of Noah’s previous Twitter posts sparked controversy because they contained jokes that could be considered offensive to women and Jewish communities. Rumors circulated that he stole material from other stand-up comedians. Nonetheless, Comedy Central executives stated that they would stand by their decision.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah premiered on September 28, 2015, with Kevin Hart as the first guest. Noah’s autobiography, Born a Crime, was a New York Times best-seller the following year.

While The Daily Show’s viewership was generally lower than during the uber-popular Stewart’s peak days, Comedy Central saw enough positive signs from the new host to sign him to a five-year extension in September 2017. Noah later said in a statement, “It’s really exciting to renew this contract for either five more years or until Kim Jong-un annihilates us all — whichever comes first.”
