Roy Wood Jr. & Michael Kosta

Since joining Trevor Noah on The Daily Show in 2015, Roy Wood Jr. has stood out in satirical news programs by relying on his dry wit and impeccable gift for observation. For nearly two decades, Wood has been perfecting his unique brand of “charismatic crankiness” (Entertainment Weekly), earning national attention through high-profile television appearances and critically lauded stand-up specials.

Throughout his tenure at The Daily Show, Wood has proven himself as one of the sharpest political commentators in comedy, with the rare ability to look past the immediate target of the week (Trump said what?) straight to the larger societal implications of a joke. It is this gift that won last year’s stand-up special, Father Figure, such widespread acclaim. Wood’s first hour-long Comedy Central set runs the gamut from delightfully banal observations to pointed social commentary, with one often bleeding effortlessly into the other.

Joining him is stand-up comic and fellow Daily Show correspondent (and ex-professional tennis player) Michael Kosta. Aside from once being ranked the 864th best tennis player in the world, Michael Kosta has made numerous television appearances on a variety of shows, including Conan, The Soup and Crowd Goes Wild, to name a few. Together they will be providing a night of gut-busting hilarity and insightful commentary.
