Confirmed: Wyatt Cenac is Leaving John Stewart and the Daily Show!
Vulture and The Hollywood Reporter have confirmed that Wyatt Cenac will be leaving The Daily Show. This is no doubt a blow to Jon Stewart’s line up. Cenac has been with the show since 2008. He is a writer and a correspondent and quite frankly an incredible talent.
His final episode will be on December 13th which will be the last show of the year.
Cenac is a stand up comic who worked three years as a writer and story editor on King of the Hill, before joining The Daily Show. He was considered for a stint on Saturday Night Live but was passed up.
Not sure what’s next for Wyatt but it’s obvious he’s ready for bigger and better things. Us along with The Daily Show wish him luck.
Here is a little bit from a stand up performance of his back in December 2010. Not his best stuff, but I didn’t want to offend anyone with that.[more…]
