We talked about the greatest fictional talk show hosts, but now it's time to talk about a real-life talk show that is gut-bustingly funny. Larry Wilmore is the mastermind behind some of TV's most loved shows including In Living Color, The Bernie Mac Show and Black-ish. He's finally stepping out from behind the scenes and into the lime light with his very own show. Originally, it was supposed to be called The Minority Report but the upcoming show based on the movie killed that.
This show is the smartest and sharpest new talk show on television. Who else could tackle Bill Cosby and - no matter what you believe about the rape allegations - make you laugh?
Here are some clips that prove this is the most provocative show on TV.
Here's the official synopsis: "Larry Wilmore introduces the topics up for discussion on the series premiere of 'The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore': white people sweeping the Academy Award nominations, Oprah Winfrey taking to the streets of Selma, Alabama, and the state of the black protest."
