  • Trevor Noah: From Soweto to US TV stardom | The New Age Online

    The child of a prohibited relationship between a black woman and a white Swiss father in apartheid South Africa, Trevor Noah has travelled a long way in a short time to take over one of the biggest shows in US television. With his razor-sharp wit that transcends South Africa's many social and racial divides, Noah, 31, rose to prominence by tackling stereotypes and leaving his audiences laughing -- and squirming -- in their seats. During his regular sold-out shows, he often relates stories of his upbringing in Soweto as a mixed-race boy among black children in the tough township where both Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu once lived. Before bursting into the country's small comedy scene, Noah dabbled in acting and radio before starting his comedy career only as recently as 2007.
