Trevor’s Favorite Accents – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show


– What is my favorite accent to do? It depends on the day, I’m not gonna lie. (laughter) It depends on the day. Sometimes I’ll choose
an accent for the day if I’m on vacation. Genuinely, I’ll just walk around and I’ll just like, be on vacation. Some days like, I’ll just be like, oh, I’m Australian for the day. And I’ll just walk around, and I’ll just be Australian. You know the great thing
about an Australian accent, is that you always sound happy. Because always… Like, it doesn’t matter what it is, but always goes up and
it’s like really exciting. You know? It’s just got that thing. Like, even if an Australian
gave you bad news, it always sounds good. Like, “Hi mate! Your mom’s dead!” (audience laughs) It’s just… So, yeah. (audience claps and cheers) (Trevor chuckles) One of my favorite things
to do though is sometimes, cause I don’t really
impersonate general accents. I impersonate people. So the Australian that I do is a friend of mine from Australia. And then like, if I do like a Nigerian accent, it’s a friend of mine from Nigeria. Cause I can’t, cause people all have different accents. Do you know what I mean? So I don’t know what an Indian accent is. I know what my Indian friend sounds like, so I just impersonate his accent. (audience laughs) And then like Trinidad, I just know my friend from Trinidad. This is his accent so just, I just do his accent. And then I remember like one day I did the Trini accent
and people from Trinidad, they were like “That’s not
how people in Trini talk.” And then I was like, yo! You talk to him. (audience laughs) That’s how he sounds. And then they shat on him cause he’s on like, Instagram and stuff and they’re like, “Dude, what happened to your accent? Why you talking like…?” Then he’s like, “Guys, I haven’t lived in America, I’ve lived in America for a long time, and like, it’s not my fault. I didn’t try to change my accent.” They’re like, “You’re
leading Trevor Noah wrong. You’re not speaking the
way we’re supposed…” (audience laughs) So I’m just like, I just do people. That’s all I’m doing. (audience cheers) (upbeat music)

  1. 🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹

  2. I'm South African and I switch up accents all the time. I totally get Trevor Noah, it's literally the most fun thing to do. Sometimes you just got to confuse people a little bit.

  3. lololololol….that Trini accent needs work BUT those are definitely the words that come out of Trini people. lololol

  4. Really disgusting. Trevor reveals his upper class background and lack of understanding of ordinary people. He's a snob.

  5. I lost it when he said he had Trini friends 🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹 You need like two more visits and you’d be Trini to d bone lol

  6. I love when he goes into accents. He does them so well! I simply love his comedic talent's and his perspective. Watching him is the best "pick-me-up" 🤗👌🏽💖

  7. You're really right about everyone having their own 'accent'. I live in a part of the US that is considered to speak in 'Standard American English'–that is, without an accent. I always considered myself to fit right on in there, but I get asked all the time on the bus or after ordering in lines what part of the UK I'm from. I was born and raised in this city, and I honestly can't figure out why this questions keeps happening. My only guess is the combination of sounding like a giant nerd all the time (sorry, I don't know what to do about that) and my mother's insistence that I e-nun-ci-ate my consonants to nearly comical degrees. I still don't think having very succinct consonants should make me sound like I'm from overseas, but I guess I'm wrong. I guess an individual's little idiosyncrasies can add up.

  8. Got guaranteed admission to the Daily Show… i want to ask him a good question, too afraid to come off just asking a silly one. does anybody have any idea? 😂

  9. Represent Trinidad and Tobago, come visit Trinidad bro, we will teach you the true accent and while you here eat a bake and shark or a doubles for the true Trini experience

  10. I love doing accents too. And having one for a day 😂 I'm not as good as Trevor though
    Love you Trevor! ❤️ Could you do a whole show with Nigerian accent? It's my favourite 😀

  11. I can teach Trevor the Indonesian Accent if he wants… its the 4th most populated country in the world, should give it a try no?

  12. Trevor's Trini friend reminds me of a British friend of the family who has lived here since her early 20s… to any American, she's quite obviously not American and probably British as soon as she speaks, and when she goes home to Liverpool, people give her a hard time for her "American" accent.

  13. It is hard to keep your accent when you're in America, I got so sick of people not understanding my NZ accent that I gave up and started speaking like an American. Which was awkward when my parents came to visit, but also helpful for them because they couldn't even order a sandwich or give directions to a cabbie without being misunderstood. My accent switched back when I got home, but whenever I talk about my time in the States, my accent gets a slight American twang. LOL.

  14. I do the same thing with Scottish accents:

    Iain De Caestecker
    Steven Moffat
    Craig Ferguson

    All three have some connection to Glasgow but they sound different if you hear them right next to each other.

    And they have different quirks that help anchor you to a more specific-sounding accent, that I think makes it more believable, perhaps because of the consistency.

  15. Trevor noah can tell me my car crashed,I went bankrupt and my friend die all at once and I would still be dead laughing…

  16. Wait I from Trinidad and that is how some of us talk! So yeah Trevor is right when he do accents he don't speak for everyone!

  17. Trevor Noah must have a lot of friends from different countries. Me I only have friends from the USA, Canada, Mexico, and South Korea.
