Trevor Noah, South Africa’s sensational multi-talented comedian is bringing his indelible comedy to Heinz Hall!
Trevor Noah was born in Johannesburg in 1984 and is a comedian, television and radio host, and actor. He began his career in show business by starring in a South African soap opera (Isidingo) when he was 18. The exposure led to him hosting his own radio show (aptly named Noah's Ark) on a leading local youth radio station. He went on to host TV shows, film, television, and music awards as well as reality TV series. Noah then decided to focus on pursuing a career in comedy instead of acting and radio hosting. He’s been influenced by many comedians and he said in an interview, “The kings are indisputable. Richard Pryor; Cosby; for me personally I didn't know of him before I started comedy but Eddie Murphy changed my view on the thing and I definitely look up to him as a comedic influence. Chris Rock in terms of the modern black comedian and Dave Chappelle. Those are the guys that have laid the foundation and have moved the yardstick for all comedians, not just Black comedians.” In 2014 Noah began to appear regularly on the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and succeeded him as the show’s host in September 2015.
