Jessica Williams Is Leaving The Daily Show Tomorrow to Work on Her Own Pilot

(via EW)

There ought to be one hell of a memorable montage of Ms. Williams’ fine work while at The Daily Show.

This Thursday’s episode of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be her last as she will be on to writing, producing, and starring in her very own pilot at Comedy Central afterwards. As with so many stellar correspondents before her, it was only a matter of time before bigger opportunities (i.e. potentially her own show) were going to come along. 

The pilot, as she describes, is “…about somebody in their 20s who has all these social ideas, but still does not have it together. [Pauses] And she’s, like, goofy and silly and funny!”

While still just a pilot, we have a hard time imagining Comedy Central not moving forward with it in order to keep as much talent from The Daily Show on their network as possible.
