Looks like Charlamagne Tha God is diversifying his bonds and heading to a new network. No stranger to TV, The Breakfast Club host is now partnering with Stephen Colbert for a late night show coming to Comedy Central. Colbert will serve as co-creator and he will make his return to the network to put him on the map with The Daily Show.
Aptly titled Tha God’s Honest Truth with Lenard ‘Charlamagne’ McKelvey will debut Friday, September 17 at 10:00pm EST. The show will be a weekly half hour series that will tackle social issues, sketches, social experiments and deep dives. It will all be unfiltered, unapologetic and comedic.
This is what Charlamagne had to say about the series:
“This is the third talk show Chris McCarthy has done with me and those shows prepared me for this opportunity. My South Carolina brethren Stephen Colbert is the ultimate cosign in the late night space and he wouldn’t cosign no bullshit! We are going to win an Emmy next year for best lighting direction I can feel it!!!”
We’ll be tuning in and we’re sure plenty of the show’s content will make its way online following the airing.
