WINNING LATE NIGHT BY A LANDSLIDE.

COMEDY CENTRAL LAUNCHES NEW LATE NIGHT WEEKLY SERIES THE PRESIDENT SHOW HOSTED BY ANTHONY ATAMANUIK AS DONALD J. TRUMP PREMIERING THURSDAY, APRIL 27 AT 11:30 P.M. ET/PT

Produced by Adam Pally's Clone Wolf Productions and Executive Produced by Anthony Atamanuik, Peter Grosz, Pally, Jason Ross, and 3 Arts Entertainment's Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman and Greg Walter

NEW YORK, April 3, 2017 - Continuing in Comedy Central's grand tradition of producing groundbreaking late night formats, comes The President Show. Just like a certain chief executive in Washington, The President Show gleefully tosses out the rulebook of its predecessors. Created by Anthony Atamanuik who hosts as Donald J. Trump, and produced by Clone Wolf Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment, this weekly, topical series will air on Thursdays following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah beginning Thursday, April 27 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.

"When I was first approached about this show I thought it would be about me, but on further thought, this makes way more sense," said Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central.

"Laughing at the President is a proud American tradition and we hope not to disappoint anyone in that department," Atamanuik said. "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!"

In the world of The President Show, Trump is bypassing the crooked media by hosting a late-night show direct from the Oval Office. No unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. Just a fun show where he can put his unique Trumpian spin on such late-night staples as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews. Vice President Mike Pence is featured as his sidekick, played by Peter Grosz.

Anthony Atamanuik has received critical acclaim and a fervent new fan base with his pitch perfect Donald Trump impression, skewering the candidate with razor sharp comedic activism on a nationwide, 40-city "Trump vs. Bernie" tour with James Adomian, as well as in debate and sketch specials for Fusion. Their album, Trump Vs. Bernie: Live From Brooklyn, debuted at #1 on iTunes in and was praised as a must-have album for 2016.

He has also performed as Trump multiple times on The Howard Stern Show, ABC's The View, CNN Newsroom and co-hosted a week-long Trump takeover of Comedy Central's @midnight with Chris Hardwick. He has also performed his solo show "Trump Dump" at the UCB New York City theater, SXSW Festival, and Moontower Comedy Festival and was honored as one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch" at the 2016 Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.

Atamanuik has been performing and teaching improv at the Upright Citizen's Brigade for 13 years. He had a recurring role on 30 Rock and recently appeared on Hulu's Difficult People, Comedy Central's Broad City. He was also a writer for Comedy Central's 4/20 event series Time Traveling Bong.

Peter Grosz began his improv training at iO Chicago and wrote and performed in four reviews on The Second City's ETC stage. Films include Stranger Than Fiction, Slow Learners and Aardvark and TV credits include Comedy Central's Key & Peele, Inside Amy Schumer and HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Vinyl and a recurring role on Veep. He wrote for NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, received two Emmy Awards for his writing on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report and is a regular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me.

The President Show is executive produced by Anthony Atamanuik, Peter Grosz, Adam Pally (Making History, The Mindy Project, Happy Endings, Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), and 3 Arts Entertainment's Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman, and Greg Walter. The series is produced by Pally's Clone Wolf Productions and directed by Andre Allen. Sarah Babineau and Ari Pearce are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
