Continuing in Comedy Central’s grand tradition of producing groundbreaking late-night formats, The Nightly Show (twitter: @NightlyShow) provides viewers with Larry Wilmore’s deconstructive point of view and comedic take on current events and pop culture. Hosted by Wilmore, the series features a diverse panel of guests who offer a perspective largely missing in the late-night television landscape. The panel discussion will include Larry Wilmore, executive producer Rory Albanese, head writer Robin Thede, and Nightly Show contributors Mike Yard, Ricky Velez, Jordan Carlos, and Holly Walker. The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore was created by Jon Stewart and produced by Stewart’s Busboy Productions.
