If you can't laugh, you have nothing-Trevor Noah

Trevor comes from humble beginnings. He grew up in Soweto, Johannesburg and currently is set to take over The Daily Show for John Stewart. That’s a rags to riches tale to set your curiosity off! Long story short, Trevor has earned himself the title of being the new host of America’s biggest satirical news show.

Trevor Noah will be taking the reins on the 28th of September this year! His assuming this position marks the beginning of a new era for the Daily Show. A non-American, known predominantly in his home country-South Africa- alone, will be the new face of America’s influential comedy news T.V show. You have to give it to him, Trevor is a force to be reckoned with.
