Comedy Central Is Cancelling Larry Wilmore's 'The Nightly Show'


Larry Wilmore

Larry Wilmore’s late night comedy talk programme ‘The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore’ is being cancelled by Comedy Central after a little over 18 months on the air, it has been announced.

The network announced on Monday (August 15th) that Wilmore’s show, which premiered in January 2015, will be coming to an end this Thursday. The programme took over from Stephen Colbert’s long-running favourite ‘The Colbert Report’ when the host jumped to CBS, and Wilmore sought to continue in the same vein of political humour, having also been an alumnus of Jon Stewart’s satirical ‘The Daily Show’ from 2006 to 2014.
