JOHANNESBURG — Comedian Trevor Noah has paid tribute to his grandmother, Frances “Gogo” Noah, who was laid to rest Thursday.

The daily show the host posted a silent video of the two posing for a photo with the caption “How can I smile for a photo when I have no teeth?”

In social media posts, the comedian revealed his grandmother died peacefully in her sleep earlier this week. He said she had “blessed us with one last Mother’s Day which she enjoyed to the fullest”.

“My grandmother was born in 1927 and even though she was 95 years old, she still had the fondest memories of all of us. Every moment spent with her was like a magical journey through time as she recounted all the greatest joys, family losses, accomplishments & milestones,” Noah tweeted.

Gogo Noah had appeared on her grandson’s Comedy Central show, and he frequently talked about her on The daily show.

In his Twitter feed, Noah shared who his grandmother was and the influences she had on him and others.

“Her home in Soweto was not just a home, it was a place of refuge, a place other women came to when they had nowhere else to go, a place where members of the community gathered to pray together every week,” he tweeted.

The comedian thanked his fans for their condolences, adding that he cried all week celebrating his life.
