Charlamagne Tha God is ascending to new heights.
Because the popular presenter has just nabbed his very own Comedy Central talk show.
Full story below…
Moments ago, the ViacomCBS-owned network announced that The Breakfast Club personality will anchor a weekly late-night series named Tha God’s Honest Truth With Lenard ‘Charlamagne’ McKelvey.
Ser to premiere September 17 at 10pm ET, the weekly half-hour show will reportedly center around Charlamagne’s “culturally fluent take on social issues” and also feature sketches, interviews, and “social experiments.”
Helmed by MTV Entertainment Studios, the show is executive produced by Rachael Edwards, ‘The Boondocks’ creator Aaron McGruder, Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht, Karen Kinney, James Dixon, and Norman Aladjem.
Charlamagne said of the “Tha God’s Honest Truth”:
“This is one of those moments where I can show you better than I can tell you. 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 co-sign in the late-night space and he wouldn’t co-sign no bullsh*t! We are going to win an Emmy next year for best lighting direction I can feel it!!!”
The high-profile gig comes on the heels of Charlamagne’s major multi-layered deal with iHeartMedia, which included the launch of The Black Effect podcast network and the continued commitment to The Breakfast Club.
