Noah has risen in comedic fame, having released stand-up specials and written a memoir on growing up in South Africa called, "Born a Crime" in addition to hosting the Comedy Central show.

The comedian was born to mixed-race parents in South Africa during apartheid, making his existence a crime under the country's laws.

"I was born a crime ... I was born to a black, South African mother and a white, Swiss father during apartheid in South Africa," Noah said on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" in 2016. On writing the book, Boah said he "learned things about my life I didn't actually even know."

"For instance, I always thought I was an indoor child, turns out I wasn't allowed to leave the house because if I was seen in Soweto ... the police would see me ... and take me away and send me to an orphanage," Noah said.
