The President Show: Season 1 Reviews

October 19, 2017
Most new late-night hosts take months to settle into their desk. Already, after two episodes, Atamanuik's shtick feels fully formed.

Time will tell what material the headlines will give this flexible crew to work with.

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.

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.
April 28, 2017
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.
April 28, 2017
Slapdash and one-joke-silly, The President Show would not seem to have much of a future as an ongoing enterprise.
April 28, 2017
Anthony Atamanuik's impersonation of the president seems more designed as entertainment for tired conventioneers than as cutting-edge political humor.
April 28, 2017
In an entertainment landscape -- hell, make that an entire planet -- forever bogged down by Trump headlines and impersonations, Atamanuik has actually found a way to stand out.

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.

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).
