U.S. President Donald Trump has finally got his own weekly Comedy Central show but in the form of his impersonator. That said, whether he likes it or not, it seems that stand-up comedian Anthony Atamanuik will have to watch Trump more intently than ever for the new stint. In addition, it was revealed that the Comedy Central show will also cast a former Chicago improviser, Pete Grosz who is set to appear as Vice President Mike Pence.
President Trump's Comedy Central Show?
Titled as "The President Show", The Independent reports that the show's logic will have to see Trump decide to broadcast his views directly from the Oval Office in the White House. In one of his statements, Atamanuik said that laughing at the president is apparently a proud American tradition and the show hopes not to disappoint anyone in that department. Additionally, the stand-up comedian explains that the country's political system is too broken for them to be contented in joking about one man.
Meanwhile, as per Chortle, Atamanuik also jokingly said that the show will mean no unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. In a trailer for the show, Atamanuik, in the guise of President Trump, was found to have been explaining that Comedy Central begged him to do the show. The impersonator has highly emphasized that he was begged by what he considers to be a failing Comedy Central. As of the press time, "The President Show" is scheduled to air on Comedy Central in the U.S. from April 2 but no information has been released whether it will be shown in the UK.
