Johannesburg – We've probably said this before, but Trevor Noah stays winning. 

The 35-year-old has had one hell of a year, which even included a Grammy nomination. 

Nope, it wouldn't be fair to count down the best of 2019 without including this South African star.

So here you have it, Trevor's greatest accomplishments for the year that was. 

He's a Grammy nominee

Yes, Trevor Noah has been nominated for a Grammy award.

The Daily Show host has been nominated in the Best Comedy Album category for his Son of Patricia special on Netflix. 

"What a life I've been blessed enough to live," he wrote on social media when he heard the news. 

Other comedians nominated in the category include Dave Chapelle and  Ellen DeGeneres. 

He sold out Madison Square Garden

While on his Loud and Clear comedy tour, Trevor decided to add Madison Square Garden to his list of venues.

The comedian was extremely excited to perform at the famous location, and some of his closest friends, like Black Panther star Lupita Nyong'o, were in attendance. 

Not only did he blow the audience away, he also made history on the night, becoming the first African comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden. 

Other comics who have achieved this feat include Eddie Murphy and Andrew Dice Clay.  

He's rolling in the dough

According to Forbes, Trevor Noah is coining it! 

The publication released their list of the highest-paid comedians in the world for 2019, and Trevor ranked at number four. 

Trevor has reportedly raked in a whopping $28 million (that's around R398 million at current exchange rate). 

If the last few years are a predictor for the future, then we cannot wait to see what Trevor Noah gets up to in 2020.
