‘The Daily Show With Trevor Noah’ Adds Three New Correspondents
Yesterday saw Trevor Noah assuring both The Daily Show audiences and correspondents that little would change with his September 28 premiere, but already three new faces have joined the ranks. Per Comedy Central, Ronny Chieng, Desie Lydic and Roy Wood Jr. will all join “The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!”
Australian comic Chieng was honored in 2012 as one of the country’s “Top 10 Rising Comedians,” opening for the likes of both Dave Chappelle and Bill Burr in the past. Meanwhile, Groundlings alum Marks appeared in MTV’s Awkward, as well as We Bought a Zoo and The Babymakers. Not to be outdone, Wood has appeared on everything from The Late Show with David Letterman, to @Midnight and Late Night with Seth Meyers, winning third place on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2010.
All three join the existing roster of Jordan Klepper, Jessica Williams, Hasan Minhaj, Lewis Black, Al Madrigal and John Hodgman. Said Noah of the news:
I’m so excited to welcome these new members of the Daily Show team. Now I get to share my stress with other new people.
