​How Trevor Noah got his sense of humor

South Africa's Trevor Noah will have some big shoes to fill when he takes over for Jon Stewart as host of "The Daily Show." His brand of humor, influenced by his country's racial tensions, helped make him a household name in South Africa - now he'll attempt to do the same within America's borders.

CBS News correspondent Debora Patta took a look at Noah's life, from his upbringing to his relationship with his grandmother, to paint a better picture of the comedian as he prepares to enter American households, some of which may have already been put off by some of his controversial tweets.

Patta also spoke with Noah's agent, who remembers what a young Noah told her when he walked into her office. Watch the video above to see the story.
