Wyatt Cenac is done with The Daily Show

Comedy Central has confirmed to Vulture that Wyatt Cenac—he of the deadpan demeanor and Sea World slavery exposés—will be leaving The Daily Show at the end of the year, finishing a run as correspondent and writer that began in 2008. There's no word on what Cenac has planned for his life post-Daily Show, although he has maintained his stand-up comedy career on the side, so presumably he's leaving to concentrate on that until the inevitable sitcom offer comes in. Cenac's final episode will be December 13, the show's last of 2012, and presumably will include some sort of send-off, unless they just open up a trap door and drop him down into whatever dungeon is currently holding Vance DeGeneres.
