Today I am centering upon this outstanding comedian I came across this week. Without further ado, I would like to introduce y’all to Mr. Trevor Noah. His comedy show is simply amazing and caught my eyes right off the bat. Well, not only for the jokes themselves, but also for his linguistic skills. He can do accents, voices, and he does it majestically.
Short and summarized biography
Trevor Noah was born on February 20, 1984 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He is a comedian, TV and radio host, and actor. In March 2015, Comedy Central announced that Noah would become the host of The Daily Show, on September 28th 2015, following the departure of Jon Stewart on August 6th 2015. Will that ever happen? I admire Mr. Stewart, but I would love to see Mr. Noah as the host of The Daily Show.
Watch this part in The Daily Show and see how insightful this man is:
His mother, Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah, is black South African (Xhosa), and his father Robert is a white native of Switzerland. His parents’ relationship was illegal at the time of his birth due to apartheid, which was fought against by Nelson Mandela, and his mother was jailed and fined by the South African government. His father later moved back to Switzerland and Noah was raised by his mother and maternal grandmother, Nomalizo Frances Noah.
Well, now that you know a bit of this talented dude, watch a couple of his sketches and see for yourself what I am talking about. On this one, he is making fun of this American Californian babe. Well, if you are from a different country and has been to the U.S, you might be familiar with that situation.
On this sketch right down below, he is performing in Melbourne, Australia and it does crack me up. Watch it and let me know what you think about it
However, in order for us to finish this post, I would like to share this last video with you. This is simply the funniest show ever and his linguistic skills show. Watch it and enjoy it!
