"THE OPPOSITION WITH JORDAN KLEPPER" NOT MAINSTREAM. NOT ESTABLISHMENT. NOT HELPING. COMEDY CENTRAL'S NEWEST LATE NIGHT SERIES LAUNCHES MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 AT 11:30 P.M. ET/PT

Executive Produced by Jordan Klepper, Stuart Miller and Trevor Noah With Kim Gamble and Ian Berger as Co-Executive Producers and Owen Parsons as Head Writer

LOS ANGELES, July 25, 2017 - Comedy Central's new late-night talk series helmed by Jordan Klepper will be titled The Opposition with Jordan Klepper and premiere September 25 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central.

The Opposition with Jordan Klepper will satirize the hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape on both the right and left. The Opposition is the voice of the new America. It is the America that defines its own reality. It's the America of paid protestors, Obama's birth certificate, and the certainty that CNN is fake news.

Klepper is best known for his memorable appearances as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, which he joined in 2014 under Jon Stewart and continued after Trevor Noah took over as host in 2015. In his time at The Daily Show, Klepper defined himself with both his studio work and segments in the field, ranging from his multi-part series exploring the reality of being a "Good Guy with a Gun" to his field pieces at Trump rallies which have garnered millions of views.

This past June, his one-hour special Jordan Klepper Solves Guns premiered on Comedy Central and focused on the alarming legal obstacles and enlightening personal testimony surrounding the issue of gun violence in America. The special featured Klepper becoming increasingly aware that legislative red tape and special interests - much more than any cultural or partisan divide - are keeping the nation from simple safety reforms.

Prior to The Daily Show, Klepper spent years as a performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. During this time, he co-created and co-starred in the UCB Comedy-produced pilot Engaged which was featured at the New York Television Festival. Klepper worked as a writer and contributor on the Big Ten Network show Friday Night Tailgate, MTV2's Charlamagne & Friends and as a contributing writer on HBO's Ferrell Takes the Field. Together with his collaborator and wife, Laura Grey ("Klepper & Grey"), he created Peepers (2014), which was featured at SXSW and the Tribeca Film Festival, and the short film TMI (2012), which was a featured short at Slamdance.

Jordan Klepper, Stuart Miller and Trevor Noah are the Executive Producers of The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, with Kim Gamble and Ian Berger and as Co-Executive Producers, Owen Parsons as Head Writer, and Russ Armstrong as Senior Writer. Steve Bodow is Consulting Producer. The series will be directed by Chuck O'Neil. Sarah Babineau and Ari Pearce are Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
