Charlamagne Tha God is taking his talents to Comedy Central.
The “Breakfast Club” morning show co-host, author, and mental health advocate will host a weekly half-hour show that focuses on current events and cultural issues.
Charla told Vulture:
I love John Oliver every week, I love Bill Maher every week. There’s something to be said about sitting back and being able to observe everything that happened in a week and then come in say, ‘You know what? This is what I want to touch on.’ But I’m not going to be on here trying to rehash the whole week. Like, no. That’s not what I’m here for. I want to talk about the things that can actually impact somebody’s life, in a real way — the things that can actually help move the culture forward.
A premiere date has yet to be announced for the show, but the goal is to get the ball rolling by November’s election.
Charlamagne Tha God took to Instagram to share the good news writing:
GOD really is great to me. Blessed, Black, and Highly Favored Forever. Thank You @comedycentral
Congrats to Charlamagne! I’m sure he’ll do a great job.
