As host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Trevor Noah gleefully provides America with its nightly dose of serrated satire, a light-footed but cutting observer of the relentless absurdities of politics, nationalism, and race. In his new memoir, Noah writes about being born illegal in South Africa—the son of a white, Dutch father and a black, Xhosa mother. Join him at CHF to hear his wild coming-of-age story during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.
