NOSTALGIC FOR THE OLD DAYS BACK HOME.>>Jon: THAT’S JUST — C’MON,
ARE YOU SAYING BLACK PEOPLE IN SOUTH AFRICA TODAY DON’T GET

YOUR EBOLA.>>Jon: YOUR EBOLA, MY FRIEND!

IT’S YOUR EBOLA, MY FRIEND.>>NO, NO. NO,NO. SOUTH AFRICA,
JON. WE HAVEN’T HAD A SINGLE CASE IN
OVER 18 YEARS. IN FACT, MY FRIENDS WARNED ME,
THEY WERE LIKE “TREVOR, DON’T GO, DON’T GO TO
THE U.S., YOU’LL CATCH EBOLA!” BUT I WAS LIKE, “YOU
KNOW WHAT, GUYS? JUST BECAUSE THEY HAD A FEW
CASES OF EBOLA DOESN’T MEAN WE SHOULD CUT OFF TRAVEL THERE. THAT WOULD BE IGNORANT.” RIGHT? (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
>>Jon: SURE — THAT, THAT — THAT WOULD BE IGNORANT. YOU KNOW, I GUESS WE TEND
TO FORGET THAT SOUTH AFRICA, YOU KNOW, ISN’T, YOU KNOW, RIGHT
NEXT DOOR TO LIBERIA. RIGHT?>>IT’S 4,000 MILES AWAY.>>THAT’S WHAT I, YEAH, I WAS
CALCULATING IN KILOMETERS.>>I’M SURE YOU WERE, JON,
>>Jon: THANKS.>>I KNOW. YOU KNOW WHAT, TO A LOT OF AMERICANS AFRICA IS
JUST ONE GIANT VILLAGE, FULL OF AIDS HUTS AND STARVING CHILDREN
WHO YOU CAN SAVE FOR JUST FIVE CENTS
A DAY! BUT THERE’S A WHOLE OTHER SIDE
OF AFRICA YOU NEVER GET TO SEE.>>Jon: YEAH! YOU’VE GOT THAT
VIDEO OF THE LIONS WHO CHASE THAT BUFFALO, AND
THEN THE CROCODILE COMES UP AND HE GRABS IT, YOU KNOW WHAT I
MEAN? AND THEN HE GOES –>>YEAH, YEAH, AND THEN THE
BUFFALO GETS AWAY.>>Jon: YEAH, YEAH YEAH!>>YES. YEAH, THAT’S A GOOD ONE. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT I’M TALKING
ABOUT.>>Jon: NOPE, ME NEITHER.>>JON, YOU KNOW WHAT? LET’S
PLAY A LITTLE GAME. IT’S CALLED “SPOT THE AFRICA”.>>Jon: THIS DOESN’T INVOLVE
ME IDENTIFYING ANYTHING ON A MAP,
RIGHT?>>NO, NO. I WOULDN’T DO THAT TO
YOU.>>Jon: THANK YOU.>>JUST TELL ME WHICH OF THESE
PICTURES WAS TAKEN IN AMERICA AND WHICH IS FROM AFRICA.>>OKAY, I GOT THIS. THE
BEAUTIFUL HIGHWAY ON THE RIGHT THERE, PROBABLY SILICON VALLEY,
IT’S PROBABLY HEADING OFF TO TWITTER THERE. THE ONE ON
THE LEFT, CLEARLY BEEN SHELLED BY REBELS, I’M GONNA GO
WITH SOMALIA, MAYBE. AND –>>ACTUALLY, THE ROAD ON THE
RIGHT IS A SUPERHIGHWAY IN CENTRAL AFRICA, THE PHOTO ON THE
LEFT I TOOK FROM MY CAB ON MY WAY HERE FROM THE AIRPORT. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
YEAH, THAT’S THE F.D.R.! TRY AGAIN. TRY AGAIN.>>ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT. OKAY, THIS
ONE’S EASY. ON THE LEFT THERE THAT’S THE “SUCCESS ACADEMY” IN
HARLEM. ON THE RIGHT THERE WE GOT, YOU KNOW, WE GOT HOMELESS
KIDS. I’M GOING WITH IN SOMALIA AGAIN. I THINK THAT’S MY GO TO
REFERENCE. SOMALIA. HOMELESS KIDS.>>I’M SORRY, JON. THE ANSWER I
WAS LOOKING FOR WAS “CLASSROOM IN
KENYA” ON THE LEFT AND “CHILDREN IN DETROIT” ON THE RIGHT. LAST ONE.>>Jon: I HATE THIS (BLEEP)
GAME. ALRIGHT, NOW, I GET HOW THIS
WORKS NOW. THE ONE ON THE RIGHT THERE, THAT’S DETROIT,
RIGHT? OKAY? AND THEN UH –>>WELL ACTUALLY, THAT’S, THAT’S
A SLUM IN JOHANNESBURG. SOME PLACES IN AFRICA ARE STILL
PRETTY (BLEEP).>>Jon: ALRIGHT, I GET YOUR
POINT THERE, TREVOR. BUT YOU’RE NOT SAYING THAT THINGS
IN AFRICA ARE BETTER THAN THEY ARE IN AMERICA, ARE YOU?>>NO, NO, NO, I’M NOT SAYING
THAT. YOU GUYS ARE SAYING THAT.>>THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW
INCARCERATES MORE AFRICAN-AMERICANS AS A
PERCENTAGE THAN APARTHEID IN SOUTH AFRICA DID. THE RACE
GAP IN WEALTH IN THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW BETWEEN THE
MEDIAN WHITE FAMILY AND THE MEDIAN BLACK FAMILY IS 18 FOLD.
THAT’S GREATER THAN THE BLACK-WHITE GAP WAS IN APARTHEID
SOUTH AFRICA.>>Jon: OH MY GOD.
>>HERE’S THE AMAZING PART. FOR SOUTH AFRICA TO ACHIEVE
THAT KIND OF BLACK-WHITE WEALTH GAP, WE HAD TO CONSTRUCT AN
ENTIRE APARTHEID STATE, DENYING BLACKS THE RIGHT TO VOTE OR OWN
PROPERTY. BUT YOU, YOU DID IT WITHOUT
EVEN TRYING! WE TRAINED FOR DECADES AND YOU
JUST WALTZED IN AND WON THE GOLD MEDAL.>>Jon: WELL THAT’S,
YOU KNOW, BLUNDERING INTO THINGS IS HOW WE ROLL.>>WELL, AT LEAST WE’RE GETTING
BETTER, WE STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM AND NOW WE’RE HERE.
>>Jon: A LITTLE BIT OF DRIZZY. A LITTLE BIT OF DRAKE RIGHT
THERE. A LITTLE BIT OF –>>I’VE NEVER HEARD OF HER.
>>Jon: ALRIGHT.>>I’VE GOT TO BE HONEST,
JON. AFRICA IS WORRIED ABOUT YOU
GUYS. YOU KNOW WHAT AFRICAN MOTHERS TELL THEIR CHILDREN
EVERY DAY? BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU
HAVE BECAUSE THERE ARE FAT CHILDREN STARVING IN
MISSISSIPPI. IN FACT, WE ARE SO WORRIED THAT ME
AND SOME OF MY FRIENDS IN SOWETO GOT TOGETHER AND I
TOLD THEM, I SAID GUYS, FOR JUST A FEW PENNIES A DAY,
YOU CAN HELP AN AMERICAN.>>Jon: THAT’S VERY KIND,
TREVOR.>>NOW THEY’RE EXPECTING
SOMETHING FROM YOU IN RETURN. THEY’RE EXPECTING AT LEAST A
LETTER A MONTH.>>Jon: NO, I KNOW. I KNOW HOW
THAT GOES. I KNOW HOW — YOU HAVE TO WRITE
–>>IF YOU WANT, YOU KNOW WHAT,
YOU CAN JUST DRAW A PICTURE.>>Jon: WILL YOU PUT IT UP
ON THE FRIDGE? THAT’S NICE.>>OH AND YOU KNOW WHAT? WE

  1. Ah, Trevor Noah. The only man that can deliver 8 minutes of white guilt in an uppity monotone and take the place of one of the funniest comedy news show's greatest.

  2. Dave Stewart was so great and when he left, his first and only choice to replace himself was the very special Trevor Noah. People didn't give him a fair shot when he started because of the. normal stuff like he's a foreigner, he's black, he's not black enough, the same old crap, but Stewart knew what we all know now, just how intellegent and great this comedian is. South Africa may claim him but America has got him, sorry there isn't two of him but Americans are glad 😁 that he lives there now. BTW! Most Americans know Africa is not a country, that's the joke in this routine. Europe is not a country as well but we don't care if Americans refer to Europe as a unit. As in European socialism which doesn't exist, we all have different systems. Or European style, or European politics. So Africa, don't be offended, America is not as well-educated or well-traveled, Or well-give a shit as some other countries.

  3. the funny thing about this show is that the time I was in primary, we received gifts from some kids from the US, which actually I was quite annoyed because I once saw a documentary of the same thing which was happening us and to be honest in South Africa we are quite privileged. These 1st world countries would assume that there is starvation in Africa as an entirety which is not the case you better recognize

  4. These goddamn foreigners coming into our country and taking our (to be read in a deep southern accent)

  5. “Be grateful for what you have, because there are fat children starving in Mississippi” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 I almost died y’all.

  6. Africa aint a country it's a continent!!!! it was countries in it!!! 59 of them!!! So obviously it has different growth rates and individual GDPs!!!!

  7. I tell my friends I'm from Morocco and Iraq and they're like you're from where? And I'm like I'm Arab and they're like oh so you guys ride camels and stuff, do you have cars? What is your village like? Is it all dessert. And I'm like no we have citys too. My friends are like yeah but they're really primative right? And I'm like no they're just like Seattle or NY and they're like ooh

  8. i have a comprehension about this I do with the kids in class. I show them images of Egypt, Morocco, Mauritius ecc (which they never guess as being Africa) interspersed with images of slums in Malta (which they often guess as Africa) and they have to guess what continent it is. This made me smile.

  9. Africans sooo afraid of insulting white people. Although there are enough whites in Africa, he would choose black on black comparisons. SMH! Wow Trevor can sleep well now, knowing he didn't upset his masters. This man gets no respect from me!

  10. Trevor ended up being a hideous shitting racist. 🙁 Not even funny. Destroyed The Daily Show when he was hired.

  11. Rampant racial inequality… Yes african americans can complain about white people all day but if they reverse happens, its a scandal. And african americans can have free tuition to colleges and get jobs that better qualified people don't get. Yes racial inequality is an issue here.

  12. For those who don't know, the road on the right is Thika Super Highway in Nairobi, Kenya. I know coz I live right next to it.

  13. 3:30 I know it's a joke but no one should get this wrong, there's literally an American flag in the picture on the left.

  14. Spot the Africa: The left picture is Thika Super Highway. I use it everyday to get to work. I work in Kenya, Kenya is in East and not Central Africa, Bro.

  15. 4:48 it relates to this kid bc he moved from Mississippi to my school and he's chubby 😂 no offense to him

  16. he says,''you know wht guys just because they had a few cases of ebola does not mean we should cut off traveling that would be ignorant.'' tell them Trevor

  17. I still watch the daily show but man, I wish trevor kept up this routine. The daily show used to be some really good political satire and now its just political comedy. To those of you who don't know, theres a difference! ask your high school english teacher!

  18. Youtube comments are full of amusements sometimes….

  20. Wait did i just hear 'Trevor noah everybody' ehhhh sounded weird cuze thats whats he is always trevors line for in his show

  21. TBN Trevor Noah has Herpes delivery service. Thought I heard my lyrics inside his jokes. Bugs & speaker

  22. Jon Stewart allowing himself to be the dumb American, the butt of each joke in this segment, to prop Trevor up for a strong debut. Mad respect.
