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.

Was slightly disappointed with this audiobook after all the hype. Felt the writer was a bit emotionally detached from the events, even though it was his own life.
