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!
