Wyatt Cenac was born in New York City. After three years in the Big Apple he decided he'd had enough and moved to Dallas, Texas. Missing big city life, Wyatt then moved to North Carolina. After four years, he realized he must have got on the wrong plane, so he moved to Los Angeles, where he would spend the next bunch of years doing comedy and getting into debt.
While in LA, Wyatt spent three seasons as a writer on Fox's popular animated show "King of the Hill." Wyatt also did stand-up and improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade and Improv Olympic. In 2008, Wyatt starred in the film "Medicine for Melancholy," which was nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards.
Longing to return to the city he gave the finger to as a toddler, Wyatt moved back to New York in 2008 to join "The Daily Show," where he currently works as a correspondent and writer.
