Back in 2011, current U.S. President Donald Trump was the subject of a Comedy Central Roast that saw everyone from comedians like Jeffrey Ross and Seth MacFarlane to legendary rapper Snoop Dogg completely lay into him.

Well, fast-forward to today and the comedy channel is taking aim at Trump again—but this time, it's with "The Donald" as the Commander-In-Chief.

After teasing audiences this past Friday with a parody featuring popular Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik, Comedy Central announced today that a TV show called The President Show was coming to the network, airing once a week during a late-night time slot. Check out the trailer of the new show.


According to the New York Times, the show will follow Comedy's Central's The Daily Show each Thursday, and will debut on April 27th at 11:30 p.m.

Atamanuik, who has impersonated Donald Trump on various online videos and at different events, had this to say about the announcement of his new show, which, according to the New York Times, will feature "desk segments, comedy bits and guest interviews from the Oval Office.”

“Laughing at the president is a proud American tradition and we hope not to disappoint anyone in that department. 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.”

Co-starring alongside Atamanuik will be actor Peter Grosz—better known as Sidney Purcell on the TV show Veep—who will take on the responsibility of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

President Trump, like others before him, has been poked fun of by many late-night shows—from Saturday Night Live where Alec Baldwin impersonates him to people like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah laughing at some of the decisions during his administration—but this is a whole new spin on making fun of a U.S. President.
