Trevor Noah is giving fans the scoop on life, from growing during the horrific apartheid era in South Africa to landing the enviable spot on American TV programme The Daily Show
The comedian’s new book ”Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood” was officially released yesterday (November 15) and besides writing about his life, Trevor also unintentionally credits his single mother for his success.
In a recent interview on CBS, Noah revealed….
”She said, I can’t promise you money I can’t promise you a good life but I can promise you knowledge and food. Those are the two things I would make sure you get.”
Check out the synopsis of the book via Amazon below:
”Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents’ indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle.
Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.”
