Comedy Central announced The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, a ‘news’ type comedy show in the vein of The Daily Show, will begin airing on September 25th. Mr. Klepper’s new show will be designed to make fun of conservatives in some kind of misguided effort to push back at the gigantic reach that outlets such as Breitbart have gained since the Liberal Establishment Legacy Media first decided to go all-in on only reporting news favorable to the left.
Mr. Klepper said: “I’ll be playing a know-nothing provocateur who fights for the forgotten man and I may, at times, also forget that man. The outsider is the new thing. Donald Trump calls himself the outsider as he tweets inside the Oval Office. Breitbart was the outsider but Steve Bannon now is in the West Wing. Who is the outsider other than somebody who is upset and anti the mainstream, anti-facts,” Klepper said. “That’s why we are the opposition. We are not mainstream, we are not establishment, we are not listening and we are definitely not helping.”
No word yet on if the new take on smug liberalism will match other smug liberal shows such as Full Frontal or the Trevor-Noah-can’t-stop-laughing-at-his-own-bad-jokes version of the Daily Show or Saturday Night Live, any late night talk show or the now off-air Larry Wilmore vehicle and The Colbert Report. In fact, save for a scant few television shows currently on the air, Mr. Klepper will find the field of conservative-bashing quite full.
No word yet on if Mr. Klepper and the writing staff behind him will tackle news such as the Imran Awan investigation that the Liberal Establishment Legacy Media (such as CNN) has decided to ignore, but here’s hoping!!!
