It's a story about Trevor Noah's life, from his childhood to where he is now: a comedian. He explains how life was growing up as a colored child in South Africa. Though his life was hard, he manages to bring out humor in it. It is interesting to see how he, a South African who went through apartheid, is not bitter. It also shows us through her mother, the power of faith. The book has a lot of curse words and he seems to justify some of the vices he and his friends got involved in.
