NYC-based comedian and professional Donald Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik is getting his own late night talk show as the president on Comedy Central, Vulturereports. The President Show will air weekly on comedy's biggest platform starting April 27.
Atamanuik is a staple at the Upright Citizens Brigade improv theater. His Trump impression earned its place as a favorite among comedians after he completed a 40-city comedy tour, "Trump vs. Bernie," and appeared on various podcast and TV programs, including The View and Bitch Sesh.
"Laughing at the president is a proud American tradition and we hope not to disappoint anyone in that department," said Atamanuik. "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."
The President Show will feature segments, structured like a regular talk show: desk segments, field segments, guest interviews and Peter Grosz as Mike Pence serving as the program's "Chuy."
Take a look at the trailer, below, featuring Atamanuik's uncanny impression of President Trump.
