He Breaks Down Harrowing Tales of Fast Food Chains

Wood debuted “Father Figure,” his first Comedy Central stand-up special in 2017.

He's the Imperfect Messenger to Make Great Points

It can’t be overstated how great Roy Wood Jr. is at making a point that you wouldn’t have considered.

Bold behavior. (Contains strong language.)

 

He Helps Listeners Navigate Job Market

Roy brings his insight and humor to audio in “Roy’s Job Fair,” his podcast by Comedy Central and iHeartRadio. During each segment, he talks with people from all lines of work about the intricacies of, well, work.
