Daily Show Comedian to Visit Tacoma

If you are like me and you think the Daily Show is the only show worth watching on TV, then you probably won't want to miss this.

From my "in" box:

Tacoma Community College Artist & Lecture Series Hosts Larry Wilmore

The Artist & Lecture Series at Tacoma Community College presents comedian and writer Larry Wilmore. Wilmore will speak on campus Oct. 15 at 11:30 a.m. in the Student Center . The event is free and open to the public. Wilmore is a comedian, satirist and producer. As “The Senior Black Correspondent” on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, he adds his unique comic perspective to a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports and entertainment.

After launching a career as an actor and stand-up comic, Wilmore transitioned to television writing and producing in the early 90s. His writing credits include The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and The Jamie Foxx Show. Wilmore co-created the animated show The PJs with Eddie Murphy and later created The Bernie Mac Show starring Bernie Mac. Most recently he was a consulting producer for The Office.

The Daily Show has marked a return to performance for Wilmore. He is currently developing a sitcom for himself at HBO. His first book, titled I’d Rather We Got Casinos and Other Black Thoughts, is due out in fall 2008. Wilmore has been nominated and received numerous awards including an Emmy, a Peabody, Humanitas, TV Critics and NAACP Image Award.
