Briefly.co.za knows that Trevor is doing amazing things in the US as he hosts The Daily Show and travels the world to takecomedy to everyone, but there are special occasions that he will always remember.
Let's have a look at some of Trevor's favourite memories.
Trevor became the 10th comedian to achieve this awesome feat. Madison Square Garden is one of the world's most famous arenas and it became a big thing for Trevor when he got to fill it with fans.
Trevor received this nod towards the end of 2019, and we're all incredibly proud of him.
He received a nomination at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards for his stand-up special, Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia. It was nominated in the Best Comedy Album category.
Critics' Choice Award nomination
Another nomination received as the year drew to a close, Trevor also bagged a prestigious Critics' Choice Award nomination.
Hanging out with actress Lupita Nyong’o
Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o and Trevor are living the American dream. The two have always been great friends making it big in Hollywood, although fans are hoping for more to happen between the two.
The comedian was also emotionally moved by presenting the coveted Harlem School of the Arts award to Lupita and her mom about two months ago. The pair received it for their efforts in creating cancer awareness.
Bonding with Oprah Winfrey
Earlier in the year, Trevor got to chat with Oprah Winfrey on The Daily Show. Aside from her new book and mental-health programme, Oprah discussed the Michael Jackson drama and some other important topics. Trevor and Oprah had a real bonding session, and fans loved it as much as he did.
Meeting The Rock
Trevor has met many Hollywood stars and certainly appreciated every minute of it. While the South African comedian is living and working in America, he had many funny moments and loved sharing them with his fans.
He shared a snap of himself with two bigshot Hollywood actors - Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Oscar winner, Rami Malek. In typical Trevor fashion, he downplayed the moment and made a joke of it.
"One person in this picture works hard in the gym. The other person has an Oscar and The Rock is wearing a cool suit."
Chilling with his gogo
Trevor visited his home country for the Global Citizen festival and decided to pop in at his gogo's home.
Nomalizo welcomed him and his crew and told of how naughty her grandson was as a child.
The two talked about many things, from how handsome he was as a baby to how black South Africans saw Nelson Mandela as a god.
It was one of the brightest highlights of Trevor's year.
