The Daily Show’s Jordan Klepper Will Have His Own Comedy Central Series

Posted by at 9:49 am on April 4, 2017

Another Daily Show correspondent spinoff is own its way: Comedy Central on Tuesday greenlit a news satire show led by Jordan Klepper.

Klepper’s Monday-Thursday, 11:30/10:30c broadcast is “a companion series” to The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, according to an official release from the network. Klepper will perform in the guise of his Daily Show persona. Episode will begin airing in the fall.

“The choice to entrust me with the 11:30 p.m. timeslot is both incredibly humbling and deeply disturbing,” Klepper said in a statement. “Without a doubt, it has utterly destroyed my confidence in Comedy Central’s decision making acumen. Dear God, now I have to work with these fools.”

The focus of the fledgling series: Institutions are even less worthy of the public’s trust than the lying mainstream media. Like The Daily Show, he’ll work with a team of contributors. Unlike The Daily Show, those contributors will be “contractually obligated to reinforce his singularly correct world view,” per the release.

Klepper also will executive-produce the series alongside Noah and Stuart Miller (The Daily Show).
