The sneaker culture began really booming around the 80's when Michael Jordan's first basketball shoe debuted in 1984.

Run DMC's song "My ADIDAS" came out and were signed to a million dollar contract with ADIDAS.

-resellers = eBay, specialty stores, conventions, NY/LA/Tokyo to name a few.

White comedians are interviewed briefly and give their thoughts about Trevor. All of them struggle to find something good to say but find him arrogant due to his almost instant fame. Giving their opinions that Apartheid having been long over and that the blacks should "Get over it!".

Trever ends up selling out both dates of his performances and also an encore show.

You Laugh but It's True
Documentary about Trevor Noah getting ready for his first comedy show in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2011.

The trouble with SA is that there aren't any real comedy clubs. The venues are corporate parties where one is the entertainer, or small bars where one can just show up and talk.

Trevor Noah a newer comedian comes along and shakes up the long tradition of white comics and the documentary counts down to his show, "Daywalker".
The setting, Modern London.
Address: 221B Baker Street.

Villians: James Moriarty and Irene Adler.

In the original books, Watson was the narrator, but in the modern series, he's a blogger. Given a background character. Whereas, in the more modern series he's given a costarring role.

Holmes is of course the star. He's handsome and debonair. He's also preternaturally intelligent. This characteristic is based off of a real person. Joseph Bell, professor of medicine.
