Larry Wilmore bothers restaurant diners in 'The Nightly Show' teaser
Once The Colbert Report goes off the air and host Stephen Colbert moves on from Comedy Central to replace David Letterman on The Late Show, Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show will get a new late-night companion: Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show, which released its first teaser Tuesday.
Created by Stewart, The Nightly Show will focus on people and topics less represented in the media. “It’s a show about underdogs,” Wilmore told the New York Times in November, “and that happens in a lot of different forms, whether it’s race, gender, or whatever.””
Wilmore currently holds the title of Senior Black Correspondent on The Daily Show in addition to being an executive producer of ABC’s Black-ish. His past work includes co-creating The Bernie Mac Show and writing for series including The Office and In Living Color.
The Nightly Show premieres Jan. 19 at 11:30 p.m. after The Daily Show.
