Fast-rising New York comedian Michael Che is joining Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart as a new correspondent. Che is currently a staff writer on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, which he joined full-time in September after a guest-writing stint last season. He will join The Daily Show in June, after wrapping SNL. This is a rare talent move from SNL to another late-night show as up-and-comers who get their break at the venerable NBC series tend to stay there for a long time. Che made his late-night debut in 2012 on CBS’ Late Show With David Letterman and became the first stand-up comedian to perform on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers after the SNL alum took the helm of the show. At Comedy Central, Che has appeared on @midnight and John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show and recently taped his first stand-up special, which is scheduled to air June 6. Here is a glimpse at what Che could do on The Daily Show with a bit he did for MTV as well as a sample of his stand-up.
