Comedy Central to debut late-night Trump parody ‘The President Show’

Last week, Comedy Central teased a mysterious new late-night series that appeared to be about Donald Trump. It came with a tweet that sounded very familiar.

Today we know that show, The President Show, will be hosted by Anthony Atamanuik, who has been honing his Trump impression for a while and recently went head-to-head with another Trump impersonator on Twitter. When we spoke with him last year, pre-election, he had a plan for Trump.

“My utopian view is… put him back on TV, let him be inflated in a way that’s not affecting other people to the degree he would as president.”

Trump returns to TV to be parodied on April 27. Comedy Central’s George W. Bush parody That’s My Bush! aired less than a year into his presidency as well. According to the teaser, the weekly series will follow The Daily Show on Thursdays.
