Comedy Central Launches New Roy Wood Jr. Podcast

Comedy Central has hired Roy Wood Jr. for another gig with the network, announcing today a new podcast called Roy’s Job Fair. Produced in partnership with iHeartMedia, the 40-episode weekly series debuts March 17.

Fans of Wood already know he’s been working on the podcast, but now we know exactly what it’ll entail

In Roy’s Job Fair, work is like sex or food – you’re either getting it or looking for it. Roy Wood Jr. explores the human condition every week through the prism of employment. Roy sits down with real people from ALL lines of work about their most memorable jobs, employment vacancies they’re looking to fill, scams they’ve run at the office, and of course, the cringe-worthy office romances.

Roy’s famed humor is matched by his true empathy and curiosity for people. Join him on an entertaining exploration into the battle all of us fight every day. Balancing our need to provide with our need for emotional fulfillment. Learn from the people who got it right. Laugh with the rest of us who constantly get it wrong. Welcome to the Job Fair. Listen to the trailer HERE.

As part of the podcast news, Comedy Central also decided to announce today that it’ll produce and air Wood’s third hourlong stand-up special later in 2021.

Wood has shined as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. His other recent credits include guest starring roles in Netflix’s comedy series Space Force, AMC’s Better Call Saul, and The Last O.G. on TBS.

Roy’s Job Fair is distributed through the iHeartPodcast Network and will be available on iHeartRadio and all major podcast platforms.
