Emmy Award-winning comedian, bestselling author and former host of “The Daily Show“ Trevor Noah will join the Face to Face Speaker Forum in a conversation with award-winning reporter, radio host and podcaster Sam Sanders on Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. in LJVM Coliseum.

In addition to hosting “The Daily Show” from 2015-2022, Noah expanded the show’s audience by producing engaging social content, award-winning digital series, and podcasts for its global audience. In January of 2024, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” won an Emmy for Outstanding Talk Series. 

He is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” and its young readers adaptation, released in 2019, “It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which also debuted as a New York Times bestseller. Noah’s book “Into the Uncut Grass,” a modern fable for readers of all ages, is scheduled for release in the fall of 2024.

In 2018, Noah launched the Trevor Noah Foundation to improve equitable access to quality education for underserved youth in South Africa. His vision is a world where education enables youth to dream, see and build the impossible.

The community-facing Face to Face Speaker Forum brings world-renowned, influential voices to the greater Winston-Salem area to discuss topics in a variety of areas including political affairs, arts and culture, business and innovation, and social justice and global issues. 

The Face to Face Speaker Forum with Trevor Noah is presented by Wells Fargo Wealth & Investment Management. A complete list of Face to Face Speaker Forum sponsors is available here.
