Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah, who has earned global acclaim for his versatile talents, will join us for a rare, intimate evening of conversation. His Emmy-winning tenure hosting The Daily Show, transformed the show into a multimedia phenomenon, expanding its reach beyond traditional television.  Noah ushered in a new era, crafting captivating social content, multiple acclaimed digital series, podcasts, and more for a global audience. The show garnered an unprecedented seven Emmy Award nominations under Noah’s term, marking its highest recognition since he assumed the host’s chair in 2015.

Beyond his television accomplishments, Noah’s influence extends worldwide to sold-out stand-up comedy performances across five continents. His latest venture, the “Off the Record” World Tour, stops in 28 cities across the United States before embarking on international destinations. His “Back To Abnormal Tour” achieved remarkable success, selling out multiple nights at prestigious venues such as London’s O2 Arena and Madison Square Garden. Noah’s podcast, What Now? offers authentic and behind-the-scenes conversations with diverse guests, reflecting his candid and engaging style.

Noah’s comedic prowess transcends the stage, evident in his prolific production of 12 comedy specials and autobiographical bestseller, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. Born a Crime is the story of his unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show, which began with a criminal act: his birth. Born to a Black mother and White, Swiss father, his birth was considered illegal under the “Mixed Marriages Act of 1949” which banned marriage between white people and people of color. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule, Noah and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle. His second book, Into the Uncut Grass, will be released in October 2024, is set to be an illustrated “tale for all ages.”

In addition to his creative endeavors, Noah co-founded Day Zero Productions, a venture committed to crafting diverse and impactful content for global audiences in which he has leveraged his platform to advocate and improve equitable access to quality education for underserved youth in South Africa through the Trevor Noah Foundation. Noah’s vision is a world where education enables youth to dream, see and build the impossible.
