Angela Bonavoglia tells Women’s Media Center why losing Larry Wilmore is a big deal

IN HER PIECE for the Women’s Media Center, Angela Bonavoglia writes that the real tragedy in the cancellation of The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore is losing a true feminist from the male political comedian lineup.

She writes, “It has to do with the fact that in the world of progressive male political comedians—where Bill Maher can’t relax without four men on the show to every woman, where Trevor Noah has at least four male correspondents to one female, and where Colbert can go days without a woman guest, sometimes seeming decidedly uncomfortable with the one sitting across from him (case in point, Viola Davis)—Larry Wilmore is an unabashed feminist.”
