'Daily Show' Alum Michelle Wolf to Host Her Own Netflix Series

'Daily Show' Alum Michelle Wolf to Host Her Own Netflix Series

The show, which does not have a title yet, aims to "take a break from the seriousness of late night comedy".

Her career has been on a hot streak lately, she just taped her first hour special with HBO (it was one of the year's strongest) and everyone who picks who is great in the industry has been adding Wolf's name to their lists.

"Instead of making the news fun, she'll make fun of everything and everybody", a Netflix statement joked. The streaming service doesn't limit shows on language or nudity the way broadcast and even non-premium cable channels do, although we can probably rule out any nudity. She has written and contributed on late night favorites including Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Daily Show and after working in the industry for four years, she now has a chance to showcase her talents in a series of her own.

In an email to the Village Voice regarding Wolf, Meyers called the comedian, "the flawless combination for comedy".

Aside from working for Noah and Meyers, Wolf has also toured with Louis C.K. and written for Chris Rock. Dan Powell and Christine Nangle will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.


If you bailed on The Daily Show after John Stewart left, you may not be familiar with the comedic brilliance of Michelle Wolf. Her comment about her "former bosses" may be a clue that she's departing the Comedy Central series entirely and sooner rather than later.

For anyone following Netflix, one trend they will notice is the recent rise of talk shows.

The weekly release format is unusual for Netflix, but not unheard of. David Letterman and Joel McHale also landed Netflix gigs set to air at intervals.

While no premiere date has been set at this point, Netflix has announced that the show will hit the web later in 2018.
