Comedian Roy Wood, Jr.'s talent for observational humor and raucous prank calls made him a popular presence on the club and talk show circuit before landing his breakout project as a correspondent for "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" (Comedy Central, 2015- ). Born December 11, 1978 in Birmingham, Alabama, Wood got his start as a performer in 1998 while working as a morning news reporter at a radio station in Tallahassee, Florida. When Wood ended his shift, he would remain in the studio and tell jokes with the on-air talent, which led to performances at local comedy clubs. Wood continued to pursue comedy after earning his bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Florida A&M University in 2001; he returned to Birmingham to serve as head writer and producer for the Buckwilde Morning Show on WHBJ, where he earned a reputation for making prank phone calls on unsuspecting individuals. Wood also began appearing on television, most notably on "The Late Show with David Letterman" (CBS, 1993-2015), and at prominent comedy festivals like Montreal's Just for Laughs. After leaving WHBJ in 2007, he relocated to Los Angeles, where he contributed to various radio morning shows, including Jamie Foxx's Foxxhole on Sirius XM Radio, before returning to WHBJ in 2010 to host his own award-winning "Roy Wood, Jr. Show." The following year, Wood left the station a second time for a recurring role on the TBS sitcom "Sullivan & Son" (2012-2014), which was promoted to series regular in its second season. Wood, Jr., released his first official comedy album, Things I Think, I Think, in 2013, shortly before "Sullivan" ended its network run, and was cast briefly opposite Whoopi Goldberg and fellow comedian Jermaine Fowler in the ABC sitcom pilot "Delores & Jermaine" (2014). The pilot was not picked up for series broadcast, but Wood, Jr., bounced back the following year when he was named as one of three new correspondents for "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah."
