Wyatt Cenac on The Daily Show, Michael Steele, and Rally to Restore Sanity

Named one of Variety's 2009 comics to watch, Wyatt Cenac has crept into the national consciousness thanks to his gig as a correspondent on The Daily Show, earning an Emmy for his contributions on the writing staff. Not content with resting on his Emmy winning laurels, Wyatt is in town this weekend preparing for the filming of his first comedy special. We talked to Wyatt about writing for The Daily Show, Muppet Michael Steele, hip hop, and how the Rally for Sanity left him feeling like a Hooters waitress. Wyatt is performing at the Miami Improv tonight through this Saturday.
