Wyatt Cenac is best known as being a correspondent for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as well as writing for King of The Hill. He’s also been in films such as Sleepwalk With Me and Darren Grodsky’s independent film Growing Up (and Other Lies). Working more on his own projects these days, the New York comic wrote and directed his new one-hour standup special on Netflix, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn. He’s currently traveling for his tour "Wyatt Cenac Live in Brooklyn in ___(insert city name here)___", and I caught up with him to talk to him about his plans for doing more of his own projects. Hint: they involve puppets.
Senior Women's Issues Correspondent Kristen Schaal paid a visit to the Daily Show desk last night, where she explored some of the Republican party's ridiculously sexist ads targeted to women and debuted her very own ad for men that's equally insulting.
Here's a clip of last night's fantastic Daily Show segment starring Jessica Williams, who attempts to prove that sexism and street harassment aren't issues big enough for women to complain about — until, of course, she meets with a ton of women who feel a little differently.
The Daily Show returned with a new episode last night, and during a segment on the recent shooting in Ferguson, correspondent Michael Che attempted to report on the event from a safe location for an unarmed black man — which, it turns out, doesn't exist at all.
