On April 27, Comedy Central will debut a new late-night show — The President Show — on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m, hosted by Anthony Atamanuik (as Donald Trump) and set in the Oval Office, NYT reports.

"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. 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!" — Anthony Atamanuik
