In 2016, Trevor released his first book, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, which became an instant New York Times bestseller.

This past year, “The Daily Show” was nominated for a Writers Guild Award, a GLAAD award as well as two NAACP Image Awards. Noah recently won a Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series for his hosting role on “The Daily Show – Between the Scenes.”
