Trevor (@TrevorNoah https://twitter.com/Trevornoah) has hosted numerous
television shows in his native country, including South Africa's music,
television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival and two
seasons of his own late night talk show. Noah had his U.S. television debut
on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and has also appeared on "Late Show with
David Letterman (http://youtu.be/IkaaEqbor5U)," becoming the first South
African stand-up comedian to appear on either late night show. His Showtime
comedy special, "Trevor Noah: African American" premiered in 2013. Trevor
will next be seen as a contributor on The Daily Show.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
