TV's underrated stars of 2012: Zap2it's Year in Review
Image 28 of 29
Jessica Williams, 'The Daily Show'( Comedy Central )
You know her as: Senior Political Analyst, Senior Youth Correspondent, Senior Judicial Correspondent
Why we like her: The 23-year-old comedian is the fake news program's first-ever female African-American correspondent, and she's infused the show with freshness, vivacity and sass. Unlike other rookies (and some old-timers), she makes her scripts seem natural and unrehearsed, and she's even more hilarious when ad libbing. Simply put, "The Daily Show" is better when Jessica Williams is on it.
Where else you've seen her: "Just for Kicks" (Nickelodeon), Upright Citizens Brigade
-- Drusilla Moorhouse, Zap2it
