Noah is considered the most successful comedian in Africa and best known in the U.S. for being the host of the Emmy and Peabody award-winning “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. This year, “The Daily Show” has been nominated for a Writers Guild Award (comedy/variety series). Noah joined “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in 2014 as a contributor. He has been the permanent host since replacing Stewart in 2015.
Last year, Noah debuted his one-hour stand-up special, “Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation,” on Comedy Central. He was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film “You Laugh But It’s True,” focusing on Noah’s career in post-apartheid South Africa. Noah’s ninth comedy special, “Afraid of the Dark,” will premiere Feb. 21 on Netflix.
Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah has hosted numerous South African music, television and film award shows, and hosted two seasons of his own late-night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.” He was nominated for “Personality of the Year” at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won in 2015. He also released his first book, “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which was an instant New York Times best-seller in 2016.
“Noah is sure to provide a fantastic stand-up comedy set,” says Jennifer Kirk, Wyoming Union assistant director.
