Watched this last night, had to rewind and watch some parts twice just to enjoy the laugh again. Trevor is amazingly in control at all times. His insightful perspectives of this rainbow nation that is South Africa are truly brilliant. We all like to jest and put on accents to describe ourselves culturally, but he really does draw from a keen eye (and ear :) in a unique, fresh way.
He makes things personal. For instance, who would have thought that one of the key differences between women of different races (he's dated) would be how they handle themselves in the shower! His ability to draw you into minute detail around everyday experiences like airport check-in, signing 'the book of truth' before entering an office park, or how one 'drives' a computer are mesmerizing and truly entertaining.
Highly recommend. Trevor doesn't talk fast... but take your time and listen slowly ;)
