Congratulations to Michael Che, who will be joining The Daily Show this June as their newest correspondent. The comedian comes from Saturday Night Live, where he's a writer. He also appeared on the recent Best Week Ever revamp. Unlike many stand-ups who take well over five years to start making waves, Che's buzz has escalated quickly. He was featured in a New York Times profile in November of 2012, where he was painted as a natural: “I said, ‘As soon as I get $400, I’m going to take a class,’” he recalled. “Then every time I had $400, I had a bill.”
