To begin with, Trevor Noah was born into the family of a Swiss father and a South African mother of the Xhosa ethnic group. He grew up in Soweto until the South African regime applied the policy which prohibited inter-racial relations. Noah was raised by his mother and maternal grandparents, and was educated at Maryvale College, in Johannesburg.

Talking about his career, the start was when the young man took part in a free event organized by a stage comedy club. Afterwards he decided to pursue a career as a stand – up comedian, and at the age of 18, Trevor Noah appeared in a small role in the television series “Isidingo” (2002) which was broadcast in South Africa. Thereafter, he hosted “Noah’s Ark” on the radio station YFM in Johannesburg.

In 2007, the actor signed to SABC to present the television gossip show “The Goboza Real”. A year later, he began co – hosting the dating series “The Amazing Date”, and he has also hosted the South African Film and Television Awards, and the South African Music Awards. It should be said that Trevor Noah won the award as the Best Breakthrough Comedy Act of the Year in the South African Comedy Awards (2008), and also in that year was one of the contestants in the South African version of the TV show “Strictly Come Dancing”. In 2010, he presented the late night talk show “Tonight with Trevor Noah”, and subsequently Noah became known as a stand-up comedian in Johannesburg. People liked him for addressing the issue of racial identity, and for his imitations, including of South African President Jacob Zuma. However, Noah wanted more – being famous in South Africa was not enough for him; in 2012, his performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival was noticed, and he then returned to the UK to present his stand-up show called “The Racist”; he has also presented his show in the USA. All these successes contributed substantially to his net worth.

At the end of 2014, Noah was invited to join the team of the comedy program “The Daily Show”, broadcast in the USA by Comedy Central. In 2015, he won the MTV Africa Music Award for the Personality of the Year. He is currently still resident in the US, and his contract as the co-host of “The Daily Show” was recently extended until 2022. His net worth continues to grow.

Finally, in the personal life of the comedian and actor, he has been in a relationship with R&B singer and model Jordyn Taylor since 2015; they reside in New York City.

Quotes

#Quote
1[ on succeeding Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show'] It's my turn to steer the ship
2As a comedian, I'm forced to have a tough skin. Until people laugh, they are detractors. You walk into a new audience where nobody knows you, they go: 'Make us laugh. Show us what you're made of. Prove why we should be listening to you'.
3When flying over the middle of America, the turbulence is so bad. It's like all the ignorance is rising through the air.
4Does America really need to the best at everything? You already dominate the world in economics, military power and obesity.
5You know what African mothers tell their children every day? 'Be grateful for what you have. Because there are fat children starving in Mississippi.
6Looking at how successful all the Kardashian women are, I don't blame Bruce Jenner at all. (On Bruce Jenner's gender reassignment)
7If this comedy thing doesn't work out, I've always got poverty to fall back on.
8Now I wonder if somebody went to jail because a witness was 'sure' that the criminal was wearing 'white and gold. (On the controversy surrounding #TheDress)
9I never thought I'd be more afraid of police in America than in South Africa. It kind of makes me a little nostalgic for the old days back home.
10You have to work a bit harder to offend me because I'm from the home of some of the best racism in the world. I'm a snob when it comes to racism.
