Stand-up comedian and former pro tennis player Michael Kosta will be joining the Comedy Central series tonight as part of their “Best F#@ing News Team“. His debut will be an in-studio desk segement. Kosta is most likely a replacement for Jordan Klepper who will be taking over the 11:30 time slot this fall.
