Noah’s only stand-up event in North America available on digital and DVD

LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2015 – Recently named host of Comedy Central’s late night hit “The Daily Show,” comedian Trevor Noah has been entertaining audiences the past year thanks to the only live performance ever released in North America, “Trevor Noah: African American,” which is currently available through Inception Media Group on DVD and across all digital platforms. “African American” debuted on Showtime followed by its release on home video and digital.

Celebrated as the most popular comedian in South Africa, Noah takes the stage in “African American” to explore his often-bewildering journey of arriving in America and simply wanting to be “black.” Noah shares his perspective of growing up a mixed-race child under Apartheid, and fearlessly breaks down racial stereotypes on all sides by becoming what Newsweek calls a “cultural chameleon.”

Noah has sold more DVDs than any other stand-up on the African continent. Fans recite his performances verbatim, share his clips globally and have joined him in legions on Facebook and Twitter. Noah has hosted numerous television shows in South Africa, including the country's music, television and film awards, the South African Comedy Festival and two seasons of his own late night talk show. He has also toured the United States with comedy superstar Gabriel Iglesias. His performances have wowed audiences in London and he was recently lauded with praise during appearances at the Edinburg Festival in Scotland where the legendary Eddie Izzard introduced him.
