The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah Will Release Childhood Memoir

in Nonfiction by
Trevor Noah on The Daily Show

Trevor Noah, the erstwhile comedy-cutie turned host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, has just nailed a book deal. Noah has promised Spiegel & Grau, of Penguin Random House, a collection of personal essays on growing up in South Africa during the final years of apartheid as a child of a then-illegal biracial relationship. The book, currently untitled, is slated to come out in November, and is said to contain crazy stories from Noah’s youth — including the time when “he was thrown from a speeding car driven by murderous gangsters.” The Associated Press revealed that insiders are reporting the deal is valued at more than $3 million. In a statement about the new deal, Noah quipped, “I couldn’t find a good book about myself so I decided to write one. And just like me this book doesn’t have an appendix.” With one-liner skills like that, Noah’s book is easily going to be one of the most anticipated celeb books coming out this fall and will hopefully join the trendy pantheon of fantastic comedian memoirs that have cropped up lately. We would expect no less of Noah, who has been killing it as the host of The Daily Show. You can read more about his book deal at Entertainment Weekly.
