Comedian and Daily Show Correspondent Roy Wood Jr. joins us to talk about his Alabama roots and working on his new comedy special that debuts on October 29th on Comedy Central called ... well, Ms. Pat isn't sure.

About Roy Wood Jr

Roy Wood Jr. is a standup comedian, The Daily Show correspondent, and host of the Roy’s Job Fair and Beyond the Scenes podcasts—is set to premiere his third hour-long comedy special on Comedy Central on October 29th, off record. Fun fact: Roy’s second one-hour, No One Loves You (2019) remains Comedy Central’s highest-rated original standup premiere since his first one-hour Father Figure (2017). This year, Roy has had some major wins: he produced the PBS documentary The Neutral Ground (which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival), moderated a Fatherly conversation with President Obama, was featured in CNN's The Story of Late Night special, and appeared on a moving episode of PBS Finding Your Roots. If you know Roy, you know his love for his Black southern ancestry runs deep; he penned a piece on it for the New York Times back in 2018.

Currently, he’s shooting the Miramax film Confess, Fletch alongside Jon Hamm, developing a comedy at FOX with Denis Leary, and is gearing up for roles in NBC and Hulu shows that have yet to be announced. His other acting credits include Space Force, Better Call Saul and The Last OG. And throughout the pandemic, Roy’s Daily Show segments and hot takes on Twitter/Instagram have sparked hilarious online debates and regular press/blog pickup. As you can see, Roy has a ton coming down the pipeline, and I’m hoping you’ll speak with him timed to the October 29th premiere of his comedy special.
