The President Show: Season 1 (2017)


Critic Consensus: Anthony Atamnuik's eerily accurate impression of the commander-in-chief makes this scathing satire worth watching, although the cheeky series could use a little more coloring along the edges.

An excellent Trump impression, but a little too much of it.

The President Show looks to be a surprisingly robust, well-produced work with ambitions greater than scoring cheap hits.

Atamanuik's impersonation of Trump is unsettlingly good (to the point you may wonder if he might consider a part-time gig in Washington, just so you could be sure he was kidding).

My initial instinct here is to wonder how long it will be before this joke wears thin. And, if this was any sort of similar show, I wouldn't be confident that it will hold up for long. But this is Donald Trump we're talking about.

Presidential satire hosts tired jokes, innuendo, language.

May 9, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Slapdash and one-joke-silly, The President Show would not seem to have much of a future as an ongoing enterprise.

Apr 28, 2017 | Full Review…

There are moments when Atamanuik almost lets the mask slip, speaking about the travesty of Trumpism as Atamanuik, but through the voice and mannerisms of Trump.

Most new late-night hosts take months to settle into their desk. Already, after two episodes, Atamanuik's shtick feels fully formed.

Barring a creative uptick, the chances of a novelty act like The President Show hanging around that long look slim. Still, as more than one pundit has noted over the last year, stranger things have happened.
