Jordan Klepper is taking on the alt-right this fall. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Daily Show correspondent’s new TV show The Oppositions will debut in September.
The comedy program will star Klepper as an alt-right media provocateur. The show itself is being described as a response to the “hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape.”
At a recent press conference, Klepper revealed the inspiration for The Opposition, which premieres on Comedy Central on September 25th at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT:
Dear lord, do you want to see another full Alex Jones? I think we were inspired by those points of view. I’m a Midwesterner. I would like to see my [character] as an Alex Jones meets Garrison Keillor”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Klepper from The Daily Show? Will you watch The Opposition?
