The upcoming movie is an adaption of the 34-year-old The Daily Show host’s 2016 memoir Born a Crime: Stories From a Southern African Childhood – and Trevor will be producing it with his Ark Angels Production company.

In his book, Trevor details how his mom Patricia grew up in a hut with 14 other people and how she would take him to three churches every Sunday, a prayer meeting on Tuesday, Bible study on Wednesday, and youth church on Thursday.
