Jessica Williams Ends 4-Year 'Daily Show' Run This Week, Lands Her Own Show On Comedy Central
After a four year run as a correspondent on The Daily Show, Jessica Williams is bidding farewell to the late-night powerhouse. Entertainment Weekly reports that Williams, who began her Daily Show stint at just 22-years-old in 2012 (the youngest to ever do it,) will sign-off for good at the conclusion of tomorrow night's episode, having landed a deal for her very own Comedy Central show.
The details on the new show are currently sparse, but according to Entertainment Weekly it will find Williams writing, producing and starring in the new series. And though The Daily Show will surely be sad to see her go, we feel confident that whatever Williams embarks on next, scripted or unscripted, will only rear good (and hilarious results.) For now, you can tune-in tonight and tomorrow to witness her final field reports on The Daily Show. But if you're looking for even more from Jessica Williams to hold you over until her new show lands a date, we'll refer you to her 2 Dope Queens podcast with Phoebe Robinson on WNYC for your supplementary funnies. Stay tuned for updates on Williams' next move.
