Our Cartoon President Trailer Spoofs Trump's TV Addiction, Fox & Friends, & More

Colbert has been enjoying the surge of interest that the frenetic Trump presidency has brought to late night comedy. Colbert and his executive producer, Chris Licht, developed it into a stand-alone series and hired a team to execute it that works out of the Ed Sullivan Theater in NY, where the Late Show is filmed.

The tweet-loving, self-proclaimed "like, really smart" Prez provides plenty of forehead slapping shenanigans on his own, so it remains to be seen just how much this series can compete with the White House administration's very real antics.

The opening scene to each episode will be the last element animated, allowing the show to be more topical.

While the late-night show finds comedy out of day-to-day news, Our Cartoon President seeks to develop characters of the president, his family and administration figures. "That would be like oxygen fatigue".

"I think Michael Wolff must have stolen all 10 of our episodes to write 'Fire and Fury, ' because there is nothing in that book that isn't in our show", Stephen told reporters at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena on Saturday (January 6th 2018).

The Knights finished off their season with a win over the Auburn Tigers in The Peach Bowl on New Year's Day. UCF is football's national champion in Florida and Florida only.

"The thing about animation is the voice is so important", showrunner R.J. Fried said.

"Our Cartoon President" officially debuts February 11 on Showtime.

"He's the President of the United States".

"There is nothing in the book that's not in our show, and we just guessed", he said.

"I love my country more than I love a good joke", added Colbert, noting that Trump's behavior offers plenty of fodder.
