UCB Performer X Mayo Joins The Daily Show


We’re thrilled to announce UCBT performer X Mayo has joined the writing staff at The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Excited to share the news, X told us that this “Feels insane and unreal. I had no money and was ready to move back to LA and BOOM this happened. God has smiled on me, and I’m beyond grateful for this opportunity.” 

As a member of the UCBT community, X currently performs with Too Damn Much on Harold Night at UCBT Hell’s Kitchen and the hip-hop improv team Take it Personal with Cipha Sounds. More recently, she’s been running Unsung Heroes, a series of shows featuring POC comedians, with her co-host Shenovia Large. Outside of UCBT, she stars in the Facebook series Strangers, and is the creator and host of the show Who Made The Potato Salad? Find her on Instagram at @80dollarsandasuitcase.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs on Comedy Central.
