Roy Wood Jr. will be headlining two shows at Laughfest 2016 (Saturday March 19 at 8 and 10:30pm at the Wealthy Theater, 1130 Wealthy St SE)

Roy currently is a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central, and he talked about that and other things Thursday morning with Jojo Girard on The Jojo Show.

Roy and Jojo talked about:

* Getting fired as a fact of life in the radio business, as Roy told a story about getting fired during a commercial break.

* Making prank phone calls and how precarious it can be. Roy has three prank call CDs on the market.

* How comedy shows like The Daily Show, where Roy is a correspondent, sometimes have the most honest discussions about race and politics.

Tickets for Roy's two shows are $25 and are available now at the Laughfest web site.
