TAMPA — The Daily Show's Jessica Williams will bring her raucous observations on Congress and free-wheeling jokes on racism to the University of South Florida lecture series Thursday night.

Williams, who at 26 was the youngest-ever correspondent The Daily Show ever hired, plans to show clips from the program and talk about the behind-the-scenes process of reporting for a fake news show.

She'll have a lot of insight into what makes the show a success since her tenure began before award-winning former host Jon Stewart departed this summer.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. at USF's Marshall Student Center, 4103 USF Cedar Circle, Tampa. The ballroom fills fast, officials say, so plan to arrive early. For information, visit uls.usf.edu or call (813) 974-2011.
