Wednesday watch: all hail Jessica Williams

In exciting news for fans of smart political comedy, Jessica Williams announced that she is leaving The Daily Show to pursue a pilot for Comedy Central about “a politically minded young woman who may be ‘woke’ but doesn’t know what she’s doing.” While we eagerly await that show, Vulture has a roundup of some of her best segments on TDS. You can also get your Jessica Williams fix in the meantime by listening to 2 Dope Queens, her magnificent podcast with the equally hilarious Phoebe Robinson.

This is one of my favorite Jessica Williams segments, in which she interviews a lawyer that represents fetuses in Alabama (yes, that’s a thing).
