Comedy Central announced that the comedy writer and director Larry Wilmore will replace Stephen Colbert effective March 2015.
The Daily Show's "Senior" Black correspondent who often goes hard on Republicans and the Tea Party for its not so subtle racism is going to follow Jon Stewart, the head hancho of the program.
The Colbert Report will be renamed The Minority Report.
Wilmore and his brother Marc have been comedy writers for The Bernie Mac Show, In Living Color and The Jamie Foxx Show.
Wilmore as an actor have appeared on Damon Wayans, Jr.'s comedy Happy Endings, In Living Color, and The Facts of Life.
His brother Marc was also a feature on In Living Color and a writer for The Simpsons.
Stephen Colbert was announced as the successor to David Letterman when he retires from The Late Show.
Colbert has hosted The Colbert Report since 2005 and has been a target of criticism by the likes of O'Loofus (by whom Colbert refers to as "Papa Bear").
Well wishes to Larry on his new gig.
Well wishes to Stephen on his new late night spot.
