Los Angeles: Actress-comedian Jessica Williams has denied rumours that she will be replacing TV host Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show”.
The 25-year-old, who has been a correspondent on the show, took her Twitter account Sunday, to shoot down the speculation, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“Fact 1: I'm not hosting. Thank you but I am extremely under-qualified for the job!” she tweeted.
Williams added: “At this age (25) if something happens politically that I don't agree with, I need to go to my room & like not come out for, like, 7 days. That being said I am super not right for it, but there are quite a few people who are! Can't wait to stick around & see what happens.”
Aziz Ansari, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer have been mentioned as possible new host for the news satire program sinceStewart announced his departure earlier this month after hosting it for 17 years.
