Comedian • Host

Birth Date: February 20, 1984

Age: 39 years old

Birth Place: Johannesburg, South Africa

Born of mixed race in Apartheid-era South Africa in 1984, Trevor Noah liked to say in his comedy routines that he was "born a crime." Noah's first professional experience was a role in the South African soap opera "Isidingo" (SABC3, 1998-). He quickly began to explore other options in the South African media. He was a radio DJ and dance competition contestant. Noah hosted the South African Film and Television Awards in 2009, and that same year he had his first one man stand up show. The production leading up to the show was captured in the documentary "You Laugh, But it's True" (2012). After some time touring the South African stand up scene, Noah decided to come to America, where he was equally, if not more successful. In 2012, he became the first African comedian to perform on "The Tonight Show" (NBC, 1954-). In 2012, Noah also premiered another one-man show, "The Racist." In 2013 was his third one man show "Trevor Noah: African American." Noah made his first appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" (CBS, 1993-) in 2013, the first time an African comedian had performed there as well. In December of 2014, Noah made his first appearance as a correspondent on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" (Comedy Central, 1996-). On March 30, 2015, Trevor Noah was announced as Jon Stewart's replacement as host of "The Daily Show" following Stewart's retirement later in the year.
