Charlamagne Tha God to host Comedy Central talk show executive produced by Stephen Colbert

Charlamagne Tha God and Stephen Colbert are teaming up for a late-night show on Comedy Central. The series, entitled Tha God’s Honest Truth with Lenard ‘Charlamagne’ McKelvey, is set to premiere on September 17 at 10 pm, hosted by Charlamagne, with Colbert serving as co-creator/executive producer. Viacom describes the 30-minute series as “redemptively comedic, refreshingly unfiltered, and unapologetically Black, nothing is off limits.”

When speaking on his recent team-up with Colbert for his upcoming Comedy Central project, Charlamagne said, “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 cosign in the late-night space and he wouldn’t cosign no bullsh*t! We are going to win an Emmy next year for best lighting direction I can feel it!!!”

Colbert added, “For too long, the town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina has been underrepresented in late night. I look forward to all the ways in which the fearless, peerless Charlamagne is going to change the game.”
