Noah made his debut as a contributor to the nightly satirical show in December 2014, becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on the late night show.

The South African made his U.S. TV debut in 2012 on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.'

Following the announcement of his appointment, Trevor received backlash for his past 'sexist' Tweets.

Trevor was born in South Africa to a black South African mother and a white European father.
