Trevor Noah has been the host of Comedy Central's Emmy and Peabody award-winning "The Daily Show" since 2015. Originally from South Africa, Noah rose to fame with The Racist, his one-man show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. That same year, he made his US television debut on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." He has also appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman," becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on either show. He has toured the world and performed in front of sold-out crowds at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, the Sydney Opera House in Australia and many US locales, including the NIU Convocation Center in 2019.
