A few minutes ago, I came across a recent online article that looks at an upcoming late night television comedy show that focuses on our president, Mr. Donald Trump. The program is called The President Show, and will be aired on the Comedy Central channel beginning in late April.
A comedian and actor named Anthony Atamanuik is set to play the role of the president on this new comedy offering. Anthony Atamanuik is already well-known for performing a top-rate impersonation of our president on a previous comedy debate tour. Mr. Atamanuik is also co-executive producer of the series, along with Peter Grosz and Adam Pally.
When the Comedy Central channel sent out a press release introducing the show, it contained what at first appears to be an official presidential document. A three-sentence message declares that late night television is broken, and that only he, apparently our new leader, can fix it.
When The President Show hits the airwaves, it will no doubt be compared to the incredible President Trump impersonation that Alec Baldwin has been doing on Saturday Night Live.
Besides being hilarious and accurate, the impersonations that Mr. Baldwin has been doing have interjected a healthy dose of vitality to the classic program. For decades now, I have been watching Saturday Night Live, and I think Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of President Trump is the funniest skit I’ve seen on the show in a long time.
The format for The President Show is slated to feature the character of President Trump dealing with current events and presidential duties. Airing on Thursday nights, the show is also supposed to have guest stars, and feature plenty of attractive women.
In the aforementioned article, it says that President Trump regularly stays aware of, and criticizes TV shows such as The Celebrity Apprentice and Saturday Night Live. With an entire comedy program devoted to him, our nation’s leader will likely have much more material to criticize.
