Michelle Wolf Will Soon Be a Woman With a Late-Night Talk Show For Netflix

Michelle Wolf has been a writer for years on Late Night
With Seth Meyers
and The Daily Show With Trevor
Noah
. Netflix is finally giving a woman who writes
late-night jokes the opportunity to actually tell them, too.


According to
The Hollywood Reporter, the weekly show will
launch later this year, with Dan Powell of Inside Amy
Schumer
and Christine Nangle as co-showrunners. The show
hasn’t been named, and will apparently have no “preaching or
political agenda.”

“You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would
tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” she joked in a statement
Monday, with Netflix’s vp content Bela Bajaria, adding more
earnestly: “We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a
gifted writer and performer with a singular voice.”

Wolf recently had a stand-up special on HBO, called Nice
Lady
, which won rave reviews. She is an accomplished stand
up who was hired by Chris Rock to write for his Oscars hosting
gig. She also opened for
Louis C.K.
in 2016 and appeared on his web series
Horace and Pete. At the time, that was very cool!

Deadline
reports
that this female-fronted talk show is coming to
Netflix as Chelsea Handler’s second season of Chelsea
ends. Handler is currently working on a documentary about
politics for the streaming service. Also, there can only be
One. Welcome her.
