Charlamagne Tha God and Stephen Colbert Team Up for "Tha God's Honest Truth" Late-Night Show on Comedy Central



Comedy Central has announced that multi-media mogul, Lenard "Charlamagne Tha God" McKelvey, is teaming up with late night virtuoso Stephen Colbert - making his epic return to Comedy Central for the first time since The Colbert Report ended in 2014 - to create and produce Tha God's Honest Truth with Lenard 'Charlamagne' McKelvey.




This weekly half hour late-night series features Charlamagne's culturally fluent take on social issues in a variety of deep dives, sketches, and social experiments that deftly unpacks the most pressing topics permeating politics and culture. Redemptively comedic, refreshingly unfiltered, and unapologetically Black, nothing is off limits. Lenard "Charlamagne" McKelvey is bringing his influential, opinionated, thought-provoking perspective to late night. Tha God's Honest Truth will film in New York City and debut Friday, September 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.


"This is one of those moments where I can show you better than I can tell you," said Charlamagne. "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 bullshit! We are going to win an Emmy next year for best lighting direction I can feel it!!!"


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


"Charlamagne knows exactly what he wants to do with this show - which is smack the audience upside the head every week and make sure they're paying attention to the world around them," said executive producer, Aaron McGruder. "He is keenly aware of the power of his voice and always looking to use it to maximum effect, which requires both talent and courage. I'm very excited to be a part of this project."


"Charlamagne is one of the most culturally significant voices of our time," said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO, MTV Entertainment Group. "His thought provoking and uninhibited observations both get under peoples skin and open their minds which is why we are thrilled to be doing this show with him and equally thrilled to welcome back the Dean of Late Night to Comedy Central, Mr. Stephen Colbert."
