NEW YORK (WOOD) — A West Michigan native has made his debut as the newest news correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

Jordan Klepper made his first appearance as the show’s “New Senior Caucasian Correspondent” Monday night,  reporting on Crimea in a segment called “It’s a Vlad, Vlad, Vlad, Vlad World.”

Klepper, who is originally from Kalamazoo, joined the show after a five-year stint with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City.

He is also part of “Klepper and Grey,” in which he collaborates with his wife, Laura. The duo’s most recent short film, “Peepers,” will be featured at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.
