While there’s been a lot of uncertainty with what the future of Comedy Central will look like, after a massive staff overhaul and tonal shift to its shows as it leans into 90s animated revivals, one thing remains certain. Comedy Central still plans to be in the Roy Wood Jr. business.
Today, the network announced two new projects with The Daily Show correspondent. First up, the network will air his next stand-up special. This marks his third one for the network for the comic, behind his 2017 special Father Figure and his 2019 special No One Loves You.
In addition, they will also produce his new podcast, Roy’s Job Fair. According to the official description, “Work is like sex or food – you’re either getting it or looking for it. Roy Wood Jr. explores the human condition every week through the prism of employment. Roy sits down with real people from ALL lines of work about their most memorable jobs, employment vacancies they’re looking to fill, scams they’ve run at the office, and of course, the cringe-worthy office romances.”
Roy’s Job Fair will launch in connjuction with iHeartMedia March 17th.
