#Laughaboutit- Trevor Noah turns African Stereotypes on America on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

South African comedian Trevor Noah turns African stereotypes on America in his debut appearance as a correspondent on satirical news show, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Noah spoke about various issues making references to the recent killings of African Americans by police in America in which he compared their acts to the horrible time of Apartheid in South Africa. 

Still on African stereotypes, Noah ventured into a segment called “Spot the Africa" where he compared pictures from cities in America and Africa, very funny. The 30-year-old comedian also joked about the Ebola crisis expressing his “fear” of traveling to the United States over the recent cases of Ebola in the U.S .

My favorite part was when he broke out in a song in a bid to raise money for starved American children.

Trevor who has been into comedy for 7 years now made his debut appearance  as a contributor on the Comedy Central show which airs on Thursdays. Noah is a mixed raced South African comedian; he is half Swiss and South African making him one of a handful of foreign-born comics to feature as contributors or correspondents on the Daily Show.
Noah has had quite a few firsts, in 2012, he became the first comic from South Africa to perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and in 2013, The Late Show with David Letterman.

Way to go my African brother!
