The President Show is a television comedy series that premiered on Comedy Central on April 27, 2017. The show is created by and stars Anthony Atamanuik as Donald Trump, the President of the United States. Peter Grosz co-stars as Mike Pence, the Vice President. It airs on Thursdays at 11:30 pm (EST), following The Daily Show.
Atamanuik began impersonating Trump during the 2016 United States presidential campaign. In a series called Trump vs. Bernie, Atamanuik challenged James Adomian, who played Bernie Sanders, in mock debates. The two toured the United States and appeared on television. They went on Comedy Central's @midnight in March 2016, and had a one-hour sketch special on Fusion in May 2016. Atamanuik also appeared by himself as Trump on several shows during the campaign, including @midnight, The Chris Gethard Show and The View.
The series is produced by Clone Wolf Productions and directed by Andre Allen. The executive producers are Atamanuik, Grosz, Adam Pally, Jason Ross, Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman, and Greg Walter. The show will be presented in the typical format of a late-night talk show, including desk segments, field pieces, and guest interviews. The show's writers are Atamaniuk, Grosz, Ross, John Gemberling, Mitra Jouhari, Christine Nangle, Rae Sanni, Evan Waite, Neil Casey, and Emmy Blotnick.
Comedy Central conducted a viral marketing campaign to advertise the show by inserting footage in episodes of The Daily Show and @midnight to make it appear the network had been hacked; footage shown included a web address with a Russian country code, which redirected to The President Show's Twitter account.
