'Daily Show' Alum Michelle Wolf to Host Her Own Netflix Series
Netflix's push to add more talk shows to its content repertoire is in full force. The streaming giant announced on Feb. 12 that Late Night With Seth Meyers and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah alum Michelle Wolf will be hosting her own late-night show.
According to a press release, fans can expect Wolf to "make fun of everything and everybody, with no preaching or political agenda."
"You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV," Wolf joked in a statement. No topic is off limits, and Wolf plans on keeping the content witty and sharp.
The comedian will try to make sense of our bizarre world.
"We're thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice," said Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s vice president of content.
Wolf caught the comedy world's attention after her recent HBO standup special, Nice Lady, received rave reviews. Chris Rock tapped her to write for his Oscars hosting gig in 2016, and Louis C.K. had her open for him on his comedy tour that same year. She has also created two series, Now Hiring and Used People, for Viacom.
Wolf's show doesn't have a title as of yet, but is set to debut later this year.AlertMe
