Trevor Noah is the most successful comedian in Africa and is the host of the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. After a sold-out show at Vina Robles Amphitheatre last year, Trevor Noah returns to the venue on Friday, July 13 with special guest Angelo Lozada.
This year “The Daily Show” was nominated for a Writers Guild Award (Comedy/Variety Series). Noah also 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.” He joined “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in 2014 as a contributor.
In February 2017 Noah debuted his 9th comedy special “Afraid of the Dark” on Netflix. The special was shot before a packed house in New York City at the Beacon Theatre. In 2016, Noah debuted his one-hour stand-up special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation, on Comedy Central. Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer's award-winning documentary film You Laugh But It's True which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. His Showtime comedy special, Trevor Noah: African American premiered in 2013. He was nominated for "Personality of the Year" at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won the award in 2015.
In addition to selling out stand-up shows over 5 continents, Trevor became the author of a New York Times bestseller with the release of his first book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. In his book, he reflects on growing up in South Africa during the end of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom thereafter that shaped him. Noah also performed an audiobook version of his book which was Audible’s highest rated audiobook of 2016.
