When I think of Trevor Noah, the first image I see is from his brilliant memoir, Born a Crime, of Trevor’s mother throwing him out of a moving vehicle while he’s asleep in order to save his life. Through other eyes, this could be remembered as traumatic and harrowing. Through Trevor’s, it is bonding and hilarious, a testament to the love of someone who truly had to think on their feet.

That is how Trevor sees the world. A fantastic storyteller, he has always been a defier of rules, which he broke simply by being born in his native country. At The Daily Show, which he has truly globalized, Trevor seeks out comedians of colour in every possible venue, no matter how small. He is determined to find the best talent representing the most diverse viewpoints.
