"The Daily Show" has added another new correspondent to "The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!" In March, the show introduced, Jordan Klepper, the first addition to the show's cast in two years. And just this morning, Comedy Central announced that comedian and "SNL" writer Michael Che will join the show as a correspondent in June.

Che, who has been a fixture of the New York comedy scene for several years now, joined "Saturday Night Live" as a full-time writer in 2013. He won "New York's Funniest Stand-Up" in 2012 and has been featured on multiple "best of" comedy lists since, including Rolling Stone's "50 Funniest People" and Variety's "10 Comics to Watch."

Over the last year at "SNL," Che was responsible for some of the most-talked-about sketches, including "12 Years A Slave Auditions" and "The Hit":

Che was also recently seen performing stand-up on "Late Night With Seth Meyers."

With this latest hiring, the "Daily Show" now has a total of seven correspondents, including Che and Klepper, Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Al Madrigal, Aasif Mandvi and Jessica Williams. Current contributors are Lewis Black, John Hodgman, Kristen Schaal and Larry Wilmore.
