New York, NY, March 1, 2022 — To help mark Women’s History Month and highlight female creators, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah announced a new collaboration with Lolly Lolly Ceramics, a Black-owned, women-run small business in Milwaukee, WI.
The Lolly Lolly Ceramics x The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Collection will feature three special-edition mug styles set to be released in March. The limited-run collection of 100 mugs were designed by Lolly Lolly founder Lalese Stamps and represent her version of the classic late-night desk mug. Each of the three mug styles will feature Lolly Lolly’s signature inventive handles alongside the Daily Show’s logo on a matte black mug.
For the first three weeks of Women’s History Month, The Daily Show will unveil a new mug design each week on the show. Fans of Lolly Lolly and The Daily Show will then have a chance to purchase their own limited-edition mug on Lolly Lolly’s website on Thursday March 3, 10 and 17 at 11:30pm ET.
Mugs in this collection are inspired by the #100DayProject, where Stamps designed and produced a new black matte stoneware mug for 100 straight days, each with a wildly different handle design inspired by items in everyday life.
“Lolly Lolly Ceramics created three personalized, unconventional and inventive mugs for our show,” said The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Executive Producer/Showrunner Jen Flanz. “We love supporting a Black-owned, women-run business, and we love sharing their artistry with our fans!”
“The Daily Show is always looking beyond our headlines, packages and guest interviews for new, creative ways to highlight underrepresented voices,” said The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Producer Brittany Radocha. “For this partnership, we eyed a classic late-night element —the interview desk mug— as an opportunity to spotlight a really cool and talented creator. We wanted to break the boundaries of what a late-night desk mug might be, and Lalese Stamps’ unique eye brought that vision to life.”
“Never in my life did I imagine that I could pave my own way as creative in business through MUGS,” said Lalese Stamps, founder of Lolly Lolly Ceramics. “My ability to reimagine and push the limits of such a simple household object has catapulted me to this unimaginable realm. I am excited to keep growing and sharing my story. My only hope is to inspire other Black youth to believe in themselves, surround themselves with excellent people and stay true to who they are.”
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs weeknights at 11pm ET/PT on Comedy Central.
