SA rejoices as Trevor Noah wins first Emmy

SA rejoices as Trevor Noah wins first Emmy”

The special won the Emmy for Best Short Form Variety Series‚ beating out Behind the Voice‚ Epic Rap Battles of History‚ Honest Trailers and The Star Wars Show.

In accepting the Golden Popcorn, Noah dedicated his award to his mother, Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah, a domestic violence survivor, saying in his speech: "She is a powerful, strong black woman who didn't listen when they told me she couldn't be more".

While the Daily Show host was not on hand to receive the award, being in Washington where he was performing four stand-up comedy shows, he did take to Twitter to share his gratitude for the win.

He's won, among others, the GLAAD award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode, two NAACP Image Awards for his book, Born a Crime, and even claimed Best Host award at the 2017 MTV Movie Awards.

But controversy aside, the amusing man's latest win comes on the back of his taking home a Best Host award at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards in May, so he's definitely on the right track.

Trevor Noah of Daily Show arrives on the red carpet for the Comedy Central Festival on November 25, 2015 at the Silverstar Casino in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is the first time that South Africa hosts the festival.

We asked around the office for funniest church experiences.

Remember when South Africa said they were incorporating magic in their curriculum? .
