Comedy Central has ordered a weekly talk show called “The President Show” created by and starring Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik.
Its premise centers on President Trump bypassing “fake media” by hosting a talk show from the Oval Office.
The show will also feature Vice President Mike Pence as an Ed McMahon-like sidekick played by Peter Grosz, a former writer for “The Colbert Report.”
“Laughing at the President is a proud American tradition and we hope not to disappoint anyone in that department,” Atamanuik said in a statement. “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!”
