Roy Wood Jr.’s comedy has entertained millions across stage, television, and radio.

During his tenure, he has used The Daily Show’s brand of satire to shed light on serious issues including gun violence, police reform, LGBTQ+ discrimination, ICE deportations, and mental health in the Black community. Roy’s recent credits include guest-starring roles in Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building, AMC’s Better Call Saul, and The Last O.G. on TBS. He is also the host of Beyond The Scenes, the all-new original podcast from The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, produced in partnership with iHeartMedia, and Roy’s Job Fair, a podcast produced in partnership with iHeartMedia, distributed through the iHeartPodcast Network and available on iHeartRadio and all major podcast platforms.

For Comedy Central, Roy is featured in the digital docuseries Dark Humor, which spotlights Black stand-up comedians discussing their approach to comedy and sources of inspiration that speak to their unique experience. Roy created the digital series, Stand-Up Playback, in which he has fellow comics revisit vintage clips of them performing to see if their old jokes still hold up. He also wrote and starred in the original, digital series The Night Pigeon, the story of a black superhero with minimal powers fighting the biggest baddest gang in his community, The Gentrifiers. In 2017, he hosted the storytelling series, This Is Not Happening.
