Quotes

Trevor Noah: I think there should be a rule in America that says you can hate immigrants all you want, but if you do, you don't get to eat their food. That's a fair exchange for me. If you hate immigrants, no immigrant food. No Mexican food, no Caribbean food, no Dominican food, no Asian food, nothing. Only potatoes. I'm not even saying flavored potatoes. Just plain potatoes, no spice. Because, no immigrants, no spice. Don't ever forget that. Both figuratively and literally, no spice.

Patricia needs her own sitcom
21 November 2018 | by ginamazzolaSee all my reviews

Trevor is as wonderful as he always is. As a die hard south african fan who has watched every one of his stand ups, every daily show and all of his YouTube "between the scenes" posts, a couple of this shows sketches were not entirely new. But I will not fault it on that. They were still funny, albeit they were clearly adapted for a more American audience. I wish everyone had a mom like Patricia. She is hilarious. We need a Noah family sitcom ASAP.
