The rising comedian known as Ziwe stars in her own Instagram Live show Baited with Ziwe and has written for Desus & Mero and The Rundown With Robin Thede, while lending her voice to Our Cartoon President. Now she's getting her own sketch comedy show, which will feature “interviews, sketches and more – including unscripted and unpredictable real-world rendezvous between everyday people and Ziwe,” according to Showtime's announcement. Ziwe is promising an "iconic show." “Ziwe has clearly emerged as an auteur voice in comedy and culture,” said Vinnie Malhotra, Showtime’s executive vice president of nonfiction programming, in a statement. “She has turned all of our heads here at Showtime, and we’re excited to be the home for her new series as she continues to grow her edgy and hilarious brand of commentary on race, politics and everything in-between."
