Comedy Central’s host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, has a memoir, Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, in which he details the inspirational coming age story that led him from apartheid to the national stage.
He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the new book and how he found funny living through apartheid.
“The book is really 18 stories from my childhood. Writing the book made me appreciate the single woman even more. It made me appreciate the black woman even more.”
How did he become a comedian?
“Funny finds you. I never thought of it as a funny situation. Every thing happened to me good or bad, I always find myself laughing about it.”
