Born under apartheid to a black South African mother and a white European father, Trevor Noah's improbable rise to stardom led to his sold-out one-man show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival that became one of the most talked-about shows at the festival that year. He has appeared on QI , 8 Out of 10 Cats , The Royal Variety Performance and Live at the Apollo. In 2015 Noah succeeded Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show.
