Trevor Noah makes Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list



Comedian Trevor Noah featured on Fortune 40 Under 40 list of the most influential people in the world.

His list of achievements keeps growing as he is good at what he does.

The comedian featured in the media and entertainment category, which mixed established stars with some of the brightest emerging talents in the world.

He is in the same category with talented entertainers like Beyoncé, Issa Rae, Lewis Hamilton and Marcus Rashford, among others.

The publication described Trevor as one of the most visible comedians in the US:

“Since 2015, South African Trevor Noah has become one of the most visible comedians in the U.S. and beyond as the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, succeeding the wildly popular Jon Stewart. Noah is also an actor, writer, producer and political commentator.” 

“Noah is also an actor, writer, producer, and political commentator. He began his career in SA, where he was born to a black mother and white father, whose interracial relationship was illegal under apartheid. His childhood is the subject of No. 1 New York Times best-seller Born a Crime, which will be adapted for film with Lupita Nyong’o starring as his mother,” Fortune said.
