Stephen Colbert‘s 11:30 p.m. replacement Larry Wilmore is gearing up for his new Comedy Central talker, “The Nightly Show,” which kicks off in just over a month. On Tuesday, the cable channel released the first video promo for its latest property, re-introducing the world to the comedian.

In the promo, the former “Daily Show” correspondent interrupts diner snack time to suggest patrons try a new alternative to the normal late-night stuff: The Wilmore.
“It’s about giving a voice to the underrepresented, to the underdog,” Wilmore explains to the camera after a bunch of people either don’t recognize him, don’t care, or just don’t understand.
As previously announced, “The Nightly Show” premieres on Jan. 19 following his former boss Jon Stewart‘s “Daily Show.”
“I like my coffee like I like my shows …” Wilmore concludes to a waitress at the end of the marketing clip, “with some half and half.”
