Trevor Noah’s “The Daily Show” has found its newest correspondent in up-and-coming comedian Jaboukie Young-White.
Young-White will make his debut on Thursday night’s show in an in-studio desk piece, joining “The World’s Fakest News Team” that includes Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Dulcé Sloan and Roy Wood Jr.
Young-White recently appeared in Sony’s “Rough Night” and Netflix’s “Set It Up.” The comedian has performed twice on “The Tonight Show” and will be in the upcoming season of HBO’s “Crashing.” Previously, Young-White was a staff writer on Netflix’s mockumentary “American Vandal,” and just finished as a story editor on season three of Netflix’s animated series “Big Mouth.”
In 2017, Young-White was selected as a Comic to Watch at the New York Comedy Festival, was named as one of the Comedians You Should and Will Know by Vulture/New York Magazine, was selected as an “Up Next” comedian at Comedy Central’s inaugural Clusterfest, and was tapped as one of Rolling Stone’s 25 Under 25.
Young-White is repped by CAA, 3Arts and Ginsburg Daniels.
“The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” airs Mondays-Thursdays at 11:00 p.m. on Comedy Central
