One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

The story was good. Trevor Noah’s performance was also good. But it could have been half of what it is right now, sometimes it felt super redundant and I got bored with some of the irrelevant details along the way. I have to mention that this was highly recommended by a bunch of friends of mine, so I listened to it with very high expectations, and I was a tiny bit disappointed.
