Who hasn’t heard of The Daily Show? The longest-running program on Comedy Central, The Daily Show has won 24 Primetime Emmy Awards over its 20+ year reign as TV’s top satirical news and talk show. Now, four brilliant, Emmy-nominated Daily Show comedy writers are stepping out from behind their desks and into the spotlight.
Matt Koff, Lisa Curry, Joe Opio, and Randall Otis are the folks behind the jokes, making America laugh every weeknight on TV and live in theatres across the country. From making fun of their failed dating lives, being a cat owner, or talking politics, the Daily Show comedy writers find laughs everywhere they go – including Alaska where they will be hosted by local comedian, Mike Lajoie.
