The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore adds Grace Parra as contributor

Congrats to Grace Parra for getting back into the late-night TV on the regular, as Comedy Central just announced hiring her as contributor for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, starting with a piece to air tonight.

Parra joins Ricky Velez, Holly Walker and Mike Yard as current contributors for Wilmore. Rory Albanese, an executive producer on the show along with Wilmore and Jon Stewart, also appears on-air regularly via segments and panels.

“Grace is a smart, funny, young talent whose charisma jumps off the screen. We’re so excited to have her as part of our team on The Nightly Show,” said Wilmore.

Parra recently appeared last month on the show as a panelist, and earlier this year, co-hosted her own late-night talker for FUSE, White Guy Talk Show.
