NEW YORK — Trevor Noah is upholding a “Daily Show” tradition.

Noah is a nominee for the Thurber Prize for American Humor.

The Comedy Central host’s memoir “Born a Crime” was among three finalists that prize officials announced on Wednesday.

The other nominees for the $5,000 honor are playwright-screenwriter Ken Pisani’s novel “Amp’d” and Aaron Thier’s time traveling novel “Mr. Eternity.”

Previous winners include Noah’s “Daily Show” predecessor Jon Stewart, Calvin Trillin and David Sedaris.
