As new host of This Is Not Happening, comedian Roy Wood Jr. has heard his fair share of crazy, unbelievable stories. In this interview, we find out that he has his own tales to tell!
This morning, I welcomed The Daily Show correspondent onto the 3rd String Morning Show to talk the “Tide Pod Challenge,” how to balance humor & sadness following national tragedies, a certain celeb falling off an overpass, and much more!
About Roy Wood Jr:
In 2015, Wood Jr. became a part of “The Best F#@ing News Team” as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. He has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as “A standout,” and Entertainment Weekly called his brand of thought provoking comedy as “charismatic crankiness.” In 2016, Variety named him one of “10 Comics to Watch.” He filmed his first one-hour stand-up special, Roy Wood Jr.: Father Figure, at Center Stage in Atlanta, which premiered on Comedy Central on February 19.
