On today's episode I talk to comedian Roy Wood Jr. A native of Birmingham,
Alabama, Roy began his comedy career in 1998 at the age of 19 while
attending Florida A&M University. In 2006, he was named one of
the New Faces at the Just for Laughs Festival and made his
television debut that year on The Late Show with David
Letterman. Roy's also performed on Conan, Def
Comedy Jam, Craig Ferguson, and he finished third in
the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing. Even with all this
success, 2016 might be called his breakout year. He was named one
of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" and has been a
correspondent on The Daily Show since Trevor Noah took
over. Stay tuned for future episodes with Josie Long, Amber Ruffin,
Joel Kim Booster and a special 300th episode coming up soon!
