  7. Narciso de Almeida

  8. Violet Waters

    I speak to my Philipino nanny using her syntax/grammar, and even my pronunciation is slightly different, so I totally get what Trevor is saying. There's nothing to do with racism or discrimination here, it's just easier and makes more sense to do so.

  9. Lisa LS

    Why are these videos so damn short😂😂😂

  10. Ricò Matthew Francois

    Haha this is hilarious 😂

  15. Pico Piano

    I like the last word u have "never forget the roots" 🖤 Pretty rare this days beause all try to be classy,savage,badass now a days.. roots is necessary because its where u came from and u can't betray with the real product with a formaline

  16. Joseph Kalusokoma

    True story 😂🤣😂🤣

  17. Arun Bhagwati

    You must try more languages too... Accents is just the first step. Amazing though!

  18. Julie Bryan

    What's up with the big guy crossing the Stage like he is next? What about the guy behind him and showing us his back of his shirt? Bad day for Camera guy!!!!

  19. Der Daniel

  20. Black Molasses

    Lmao. Being South African and living in the US, I have to do this all the time when talking to my family back home ❤️

  21. Baby Dragon

    I love him the most when he talks about his family.

  22. Lenka B.

    Hmm, that Haitian bit was off...

  23. Mohammed Almontasir

  24. Carolina Murtha

    I’m Colombian and my dad was so excited when our cable provider got an all Colombian channel: news, shows. music, everything from the motherland. But omg, if my dad watched too much of that channel, I seriously couldn’t understand for about an hour afterwards. He already had a thick accent I was used to but I had no idea it could get thicker!

  25. MakeOrBreak

    Uh wouldn't you just speak to your granny in Xhosa? 😉

  26. catherine nichols

    Qu est ce que t es canon mec...miam

  27. Aleandra Burckhardt

    If you are different from everyone else embrace it. Some were meant to stand out from the crowd. Gets a little lonely for some however not If you are at peace with yourself and God.

  28. yorocco1

  33. Clara Schneuwly

    Thank U!😊🙏🔥😊🙏 Sincere, 🐞💝

  39. V.A. D-R

    Ugh, we do not speak Haiti or are Haiti. We are Haitian. We speak Creole or Kreyole, depending on writing - second one is a phonetic spelling. We do not speak Patois [that's dialect]. This is a Haitian accent in English:

  40. Mer Blink

    Such a cutie ❤


    This is so true about sending your kids to private schools in order to speak proper English, but the minute you correct your parents,.... 😂😂😂😂You will get it

  42. Darling Duclosel

    Jaajaja. Why you!

  43. Aloka Karunathilaka

    This is so relatable 😂😂

  44. Aysha Mahmud

    I sort of love this guy...

  45. nazneen tamboli

    oooooo Trevor, How are you so cute!!!!

  46. Malika Cali


  47. SueQueen 92

    I just love this man

  48. Namhla Sboniso Chiliza

    "Put volume" That is so South African...

    1. Steevy Tee

      I think it is a southern African thing. People say it in Zambia too

  49. Loktion Banger

    Trevor has so much content and general knowledge, he is on the level of perhaps George Carlin. All the other comedians have small spheres of knowledge and its either they are talking about race jokes or sexual jokes and thats it. Trevor speaks about everything

  50. Alicultivated

    Paul Chowdry has that bit about imitating other people's accents. Kinda reminds me of that.

  51. Miss Marvel

    My younger brother is like that, at home he has an accent, at school he’s American and his accent vanishes

  52. Xiaomei Zhang

    I love Trevor

  53. Funnylady

    I sooooo do this also🤣🤣🤣🤣👏👏👏👏

  54. Username [Redacted]

    I'm haitian and I'm trying to figure out what that wayouh wayouh is looll

  55. Sibonile Shabangu

    Never laughed so hard put volume 😂😂😂😂


    I love the way he does the accents with the face expressions!! Woow Trevor!

  57. Sphumie Mnguni

    The outro sounds so lit with earphones on😭

  58. H S

    It’s called codeswitching

  59. Tamar Pelkinson

    Awww Trevor, you're such a sweet man ❤️

  60. Fabiano Carlos

    And here I thought I couldn't like Trevor more.

  61. Shinelle DN

    I can relate trevor. I do the same. As long as I am communicating with an American I use an American accent. I'm not gonna be repeating myself all day... no sir lol

  62. fluffy _

    This is African parents for you

  63. Yogita Nowbuth

    Trevor ur just *AWESOME* Much love from South Africa❤😘

  64. Lee Milby

    I thought this was going to be a compilation video, bit this was equally as good!

  65. Ian Einstein

    LoL! Trevor, what you would do to speak with different members of your family actually has a name. That's called "code-switching."

  66. VeRoHdezM

    🤟🏻🤟🏻 love each single accent, 😍😍

  67. Funnylady

    Trevor that is so funny u say that because I do the family is diverse also...Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, etc...🤣🤣🤣🤯

  68. Dominique McQueen

    Code switching for the culture!

  69. Seadina

    I FEEL this.. I grew up in Dubai where every person in my class was of a different nationality. I’m Bosnian but I’ve got a very neutral/ American accent (from what I’ve been told) but I change mine to adapt to the person I’m speaking with (i.e. Indian, Arab, etc.) I call it the Expat accent, a bit of every accent smashed into one.

  70. Minh Nguyen Le

    Wait a minute isnt his dad from switzerland?
