"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.
