Comedy Central has ordered a new late-night show specifically aimed at taking on President Donald Trump. The President Show will premiere on Thursday, April 27 at 11:30 p.m., following The Daily Show, and will feature comedian and expert Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik as host of the weekly program. “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!” Atamanuik, who has also played Trump on the network's @midnight game show, spent much of last year traveling the country with fellow comedian James Adomian, who played Bernie Sanders to his Trump in a "Trump vs. Bernie" comedy debate tour.
