Comedian Kathy Griffin, who continues to engineer her comeback after suffering a career setback over her bit featuring a severed Donald Trump head, will play Trump ally Kellyanne Conway on Comedy Central’s “Make America Great-A-Thon: A President Show Special.”
The special premieres next Tuesday, April 3, at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
Trump will be played by creator and executive producer Anthony Atamanuik, who will host the telethon to “raise money for all of the projects he can’t get anyone in Congress to fund — like the wall and infrastructure (plus these mouthy porn stars aren’t going to pay themselves off!),” Comedy Central said in the announcement.
Vice President Mike Pence will be played by executive producer Peter Grosz.
The special is executive produced by Anthony Atamanuik, Peter Grosz, Adam Pally, Jason Ross, and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman and Greg Walter with Emmy Blotnick and Suzanne Fagel as co-executive producers. It’s produced by Pally’s Clone Wolf Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment and is directed by Andre Allen. Sarah Babineau, Ari Pearce and Jose Acevedo are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
