Up close and personal (and funny)

I have to admit, I thought this was going to be a stand up routine. But it is a documentary about how Trevor Noah came to America and also gets very personal. You see him unfiltered, you see his family and tragedies surrounding him and his life. And he is open about those things, not afraid to put emphasis on where it might hurt. If I had seen this before I knew he would be taking over from Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, I might have been more confident from the get go. As it was he had to win me over, just because I love Jon Stewart so much. It's like no one could replace him ... and Trevor is not a copy or a replacement. He is his own thing, a voice that is needed in America and in comedy on TV - especially since Larry Wilmore is "gone" ... doing podcast that is.

Had Me In Stitches!

Amazing background to the comic genius Trevor Noah. The personal and political are both part of his comedy and this film shows him calmly confronting situations that would petrify most of us. We get to meet his South African grandmother and mother who are both truly admirable people. During the making of the doco his mother was actually the victim of a serious crime and it's frightening what the outcome could have been. This is one of the serious moments in the film that allows us to see where Noah came from and truly opened my eyes to South African society. That's why this is more than just a record of "putting-on-a-show." Watch out for his impression of Nelson Mandela at his 91st birthday party, drunk! Had me in stitches.
