Jordan Klepper Hired As Newest Daily Show Correspondent

The departure of John Oliver for his own HBO show left a gaping hole in the Daily Show news team the approximate shape and size of a witty long-limbed gentleman, a hole that has today been filled by brand-new correspondent Jordan Klepper. The Michigan native comes to The Daily Show by way of New York's Upright Citizen Brigade; his short film Peepers, co-created with wife Laura Grey, will debut at SXSW this year. If you want to cast judgement on Klepper's reporting skills, he is debuting said skills tonight at 11:00 pm EST. Get ready to form an opinion … now! Or...at some point the future! Either way, it's fine. He'll probably be on plenty.
