Charlamagne Tha God and Stephen Colbert to launch late night TV talk show on Comedy Central
Written by laserteam on July 21, 2021
The new TV show was co-created by CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.
“Tha God’s Honest Truth with Lenard ‘Charlamagne’ McKelvey” will debut on Comedy Central on Friday nights starting Sept. 17.
The show brings Colbert back to Comedy Central for the first since “The Colbert Report,” a satirical take on personality-driven political shows, ended its 11-season run in 2014.
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” runs weeknights on CBS.
Charlamagne has appeared on Colbert’s “Late Show” seven times since 2016, and the two developed a friendship over the years that’s culminated in their first business venture. “Tha God’s Honest Truth” will be executive produced by Aaron McGruder, creator of “The Boondocks,” a comic strip and show on Cartoon Network, which takes a satirical look at politics, pop culture, and socioeconomic status of the Black community.
