      Actress and comedienne Jessica Williams got her start in teen comedy "Just for Kicks" (Nickelodeon, 2006) before becoming the youngest ever correspondent on "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996-). Born in Los Angeles, CA in 1989, Williams began her acting career aged 16 when she landed the role of soccer player Vida Atwood in "Just for Kicks" (Nickelodeon, 2006). Following the show's cancellation, Williams attended California State University and became a regular performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre but eventually returned to screens in the comedy specials "This Will Get You High" (2010) and "Bath Boys Comedy" (2011). Williams' big break arrived in 2012 when she joined Jon Stewart's team of correspondents on "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996-), a role which established her as one of the sharpest and savviest female comic talents around. During her successful stint, Williams also showed up as a spa worker in Vince Vaughn comedy "Delivery Man" (2013), appeared as herself in bawdy sequel "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" (2015) and bagged a recurring role as Hannah's co-worker Karen in zeitgeist-defining "Girls" (HBO, 2012-), while in "People Places Things" (2015), she played an aspiring artist who acts as matchmaker between her single mother and college professor. That same year, Williams and Phoebe Robinson began hosting the comedy podcast "2 Dope Queens" (2015- ). After leaving "The Daily Show" in 2016, Williams starred in the comedy film "The Incredible Jessica James" (Netflix 2017) and was announced as a co-star of the J.K. Rowling adventure "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" (2018).
