The Daily Show host Trevor Noah launches the paperback edition of his bestselling memoir Born A Crime: Stories From A South African Childhood: the compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime story of one man’s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison, Trevor was kept hidden by his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother, until the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule set them off on a grand adventure. Trevor discusses his book on stage at Brooklyn’s beautiful Kings Theatre at this exclusive launch event. All tickets include a copy of the book, to be distributed at the event.

About Kings Theatre
Upon its inception in 1929, the Loew’s Kings Theatre was one of the most exquisite theatres in the nation. Originally designed by architectural masters Rapp & Rapp with interior design by Harold W. Rambusch, the theatre was truly an ornate spectacle for the masses. As one of the five original “Loew’s Wonder Theatres,” the Kings was originally ordained a movie and live performance theatre of epic proportion. It officially opened its doors to the public September 7th, 1929 with the screening of Evangeline, accompanied by on stage performances from Wesley Eddy & His Kings of Syncopation, The Chester Hales Girls, and Frills and Fancies. The Loew’s Kings Theatre would become the epicenter of cinema and live performance in the thriving Brooklyn arts and shopping district along Flatbush Avenue.
