Since we broke the news of comedian Al Madrigal’s joining The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as its newest correspondent, we’ve gotten a few e-mails either asking or implying that the move no doubt means second-newest contributor Olivia Munn is no longer a part of the show.
But there’s room for everyone, guys! Olivia is still very much a part of the Daily Show team even though we haven’t seen her onscreen since April 26. As you probably know, Munn’s come under fire since many TDS fans believe she got the gig for her looks, and not her comedy prowess.
A Comedy Central rep confirmed to Punchline Magazine that much today, explaining that like Larry Wilmore, another TDS correspondent, both are based in Los Angeles and can’t contribute as frequently as their New York City based counterparts. Something to note: Madrigal is also LA based, so we probably won’t see him as often as say, Jason Jones or John Oliver. (FROWNY FACE HERE)
