April 3 (UPI) -- Laughing at the president is a "proud American tradition," said Anthony Atamanuik. And if he does it right, we'll also be laughing with him.
Atamanuik will star as President Trump in a new Comedy Central series, the network announced Monday.
The President Show will air Thursdays following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah at 11:30 p.m. starting on April 27.
"Just like a certain chief executive in Washington, The President Show gleefully tosses out the rulebook of its predecessors," the network said in a news release.
Added Atamanuik: "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!"
