New York Times best-selling author and host of the award-winning TV show, The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, brings his hilarious stand up to Family Weekend 2017.

Noah’s success has spanned to sold out shows over five continents. Noah’s 9th comedy special, Afraid of the Dark, debuted in February 2017 on Netflix. Last year, Noah debuted his one-hour stand-up special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation, on Comedy Central.

Noah joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2014 as a contributor, then was named its host in 2015. Born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father, Noah hosted numerous television productions there.

His Showtime comedy special, Trevor Noah: African American premiered in 2013. He was nominated for "Personality of the Year" at the 2014 and 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards and won the award in 2015. Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer's award-winning documentary film You Laugh But It's True, which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa.

In November, he released his first book, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, which was a New York Times best-seller. His performance on the Born a Crime audiobook was Audible’s highest rated audiobook of 2016 and has remained one of the top selling titles on Audible since its release. The memoir also recently received two NAACP Image Awards, one for outstanding literary work by a debut author and another for outstanding literary work in the biography/autobiography category.
