NEW YORK (EOnline.com)—Meet Trevor Noah, the newest star on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart!

The 30-year-old made his debut as a contributor on the satirical Comedy Central show on Thursday. Noah is originally from South Africa, making him one of about a handful of foreign-born comics and actors who have been featured as contributors or correspondents on The Daily Show since its debut in 1996.

Noah has performed on U.S. television before. In 2012, he became the first comic from South Africa to perform on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and in 2013 on The Late Show with David Letterman.

On The Daily Show, Noah was introduced via a segment titled “Spot the Africa,” during which he made a reference to the ongoing backlash over a white police officer’s shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old man, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, and a recent grand jury decision not to indict the officer.
