Hire Jessica Williams as the next host of The Daily Show

This petition had 14,340 supporters


As Jon Stewart announces his retirement from The Daily Show, Comedy Central is presented with a chance to ensure the quality of this iconic program only improves under the genius of Jessica Williams while increasing the diversity of late night television, something sorely needed in a culture that remains heavily biased toward white, male faces on television.

Williams has proven her ability to make audiences laugh with searing social commentary and is, without a doubt, a natural successor to Jon Stewart in this regard.
