Trevor Noah is adding New York-based comedian Michelle Wolf to his “Best F#@ing News Team,” tapping her as the latest writer and contributor to join The Daily Show. Comedy Central announced the news today in a press release.
Wolf is a veteran of Late Night with Seth Meyers, where she most recently served as writing supervisor, and upon which she made several appearances as her character “Grown-Up Annie.” She’s also created and starred in two Comedy Central digital series, Used People and Now Hiring.
Wolf will join a stacked cast of contributors that includes Kristen Schaal, Lewis Black, Adam Lowitt, Neal Brennan and John Hodgman. Obviously, becoming a contributor or a correspondent on The Daily Show is a huge opportunity for a comedian, so this marks a notable step forward in Wolf’s burgeoning career.
