Noah tweeted the review that commented on his work on the Daily Show as well as his book.



"His comedy is so universal that it has the power to transcend borders. Reading Noah’s memoir, Born a Crime, I quickly learned how Noah’s outsider approach has been honed over a lifetime of never quite fitting in," Gates wrote.

Local celebrity Anele tweeted her own connection with the publication, commenting that she had been name-checked.
