Trevor Noah's been busy. The 33-year old South African filmed his newly released Netflix special Afraid of the Dark
last November, the same month he released his first book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood.
The book has already earned numerous accolades, including two NAACP Image Awards — one for Outstanding Literary Work by a Debut Author and another for Outstanding Literary Work in the Biography/Auto-Biography category — and a spot on the New York Times
bestseller list. The audiobook version of Born a Crime
was Audible's highest rated audiobook of 2016. Oh, and there's that whole weeknight hosting of Peabody- and Emmy-award winning The Daily Show
In addition to his own creative projects, Noah has also been the subject of someone else's project, namely a documentary
2011's You Laugh But It's True
. Produced by David Paul Meyer, the award-winning film tells the story of Noah's life in post-apartheid South Africa. Noah was still a "fledgling funnyman" in this production; you can check it out on Netflix.
Noah's job, of course, is to confront topical issues head-on, especially those which he can speak to personally. He recently got personal when discussing the acquittal of the police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile. In a behind-the-scenes Daily Show clip
, Noah recently told his audience that he's been stopped by U.S. Police 8-10 times.
