The world’s best Donald Trump impersonator just got his own show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Comedy Central has ordered a weekly late night series created by and starring Anthony Atamanuik as Trump called The President Show. Here’s more info on the show from THR’s report:
On The President Show, Atamanuik’s Trump is bypassing the “crooked media” by hosting a late-night show direct from the Oval Office. The network describes the series as featuring “no unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. Just a fun show where he can put his unique Trumpian spin on such late-night staples as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews.”
“Laughing at the President is a proud American tradition and we hope not to disappoint anyone in that department,” Atamanuik said on the news. “But our political system is too broken for us to be content joking about one man, even though he is a disastrous silly little toddler boy. Mostly I’d just like to thank Comedy Central for giving us this platform to speak truth to power and if we’re lucky, end up in prison!” Atamanuik serves as a co-executive producer on the series alongside Adam Pally and Peter Grosz, who also appears in the show as Mike Pence. Check out a teaser below for the series, which premieres on Comedy Central Thursday, April 27th at 11:30pm.
