That same year, Noah was the subject of David Paul Meyer’s award-winning documentary filmYou Laugh But It’s True which tells the story of his remarkable career in post-apartheid South Africa. His Showtime comedy special, “Trevor Noah: African American” premiered in 2013. Recently, Noah performed for the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance.
