Trevor Noah


Trevor Noah, the South African stand up comedian is the new host of The Daily Show, having replaced Jon Stewart.

I have always found him hysterically funny. He has a flair for accents and speaks 6 languages. People in other English speaking countries find that unusual, but it is common in South Africa that people speak 3 or 4 local languages (we have 11 official languages in South Africa) and switch between them in the same conversation.

Here are two of my favourite Trevor Noah clips

You can see his flair for accents in this one

and his ‘flamboyant scarf’ bit here had me in stitches

  1. I like him, he’s doing a pretty good job as host of tDS. I’m not sure about the allegations he’s stolen jokes from others, or a few of his past tweets. I guess time will tell. I do love the accent.
