WIKIPEDIA: Cenac was born in New York City and raised in Dallas, Texas. He attended high school in Texas at the Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas.[3] He is of West Indian descent.[4][5] While in elementary school, he became friends with comic book writer Brian K. Vaughn,[6] who also introduced him to comic books. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before moving to Los Angeles to further his career. Having previously worked for three years as a writer and story editor on King of the Hill, Cenac garnered public attention in a The Doomed Planet comedy sketch in which he did an impression of then-senator Barack Obama, discussing possible campaign posters.[7] He was considered for a role on sketch show Saturday Night Live in which he would have portrayed the Democratic presidential candidate, but was passed over in favor of Fred Armisen. In June 2008, Cenac was hired as a correspondent and writer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. After making several comedic appearances along with other correspondents, Cenac filed his first field report on July 21, 2008, concerning Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama.[8] He continues to integrate satirical Black-oriented material in his Daily Show segments, including “Rapper or Republican.” MORE
