Recently announced as the new host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, Trevor Noah takes the stage in "African American" to explore his often-bewildering journey of arriving in America and simply wanting to be "black." Noah shares his perspective of growing up a mixed-race child under Apartheid, and fearlessly breaks down racial stereotypes on all sides by becoming what Newsweek calls a "cultural chameleon." After his US television appearances on The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman, Noah has had a meteoric rise across the US, the UK, Australia and New Zealand and is the most popular comedian in his native South Africa. Sharp wit, eloquent storytelling and the seamless ability to change dialects and characters are Noah's trade, sending waves of laughter through his audience with his inventive perspective on arriving -and making it -in America. "African American" promises to be an historic event from a comedian destined to be the next breakout global stand-up star.

Absolutely fantastic comedian. His style is very different, making it apparent he is not North American or British as his comedy relies heavily on the story teller approach making his skits longer than what we are used to. However, his commentary is right on point!

Trevor Noah is the new Chris Rock. Only the two of them can make racism and discrimination seem idiotic. Love his stand up. Very funny.

He is so intelligent and aware of multicultural differences that it really makes us laugh at ourselves. I hope more people watch this and his show on Comedy Central- the Daily Show. It is eye opening.
