“The Daily Show” Host Trevor Noah to Perform at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.
Friday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m.
Trevor Noah is considered the most successful comedian in Africa and is the current host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” which has won both Emmy and Peabody awards. He first joined “The Daily Show” in 2014 as a contributor and later took over as host following Jon Stewart’s departure in 2015. Noah recently won Best Host at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, as well as a Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series for his hosting role on “The Daily Show – Between The Scenes.”
Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah has hosted numerous television shows including South Africa’s music, television and film awards, and two seasons of his own late-night talk show, “Tonight with Trevor Noah.” Noah was nominated for Personality of the Year at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won the award in 2015. He was also the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary film “You Laugh But It’s True,” which chronicles Noah’s remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa.
Most recently, Noah debuted his ninth comedy special, “Afraid of the Dark,” on Netflix in February 2017. In November 2016, Noah released his first book, “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” an instant New York Times best-seller, which chronicles his life from his upbringing to his departure for the U.S. while living in the ghettos and South African apartheid. Additionally, his performance on the “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” audiobook was Audible’s highest-rated audiobook of 2016, and has remained one of the top selling titles since its release. The book also received the Thurber Prize for American Humor and two NAACP Image Awards, one for Outstanding Literary Work by a Debut Author and another for Outstanding Literary Work in the biography/autobiography category.
