Wolf, from “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” will host her own half-hour weekly show, which will launch later this year. She generated excitement for her first stand-up special, the cleverly titled “Nice Lady,” which is available on HBO, and she opened for pre-scandal Louis C.K. on tour in 2016. My favorite Wolf credit: She played Ruth Gaydar Ginsburg on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” where she has done many segments.
What will the still-untitled show be like? Will it be political? “You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” Wolf says in a statement light on details.Matthew Gilbert can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @MatthewGilbert.
