Late-night comedy shows are now one-trick ponies: They bash President Trump every night — sometimes in the most profane way possible (like when Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t.”).
The modern late-night host is a pathetic imitation of the best ever, Johnny Carson. To the longtime host of “The Tonight Show,” all politics was hilarious, and he’d mock Democrats right alongside Republicans. In fact, no one was ever even sure just where “The King of Late Night” stood personally on political issues.
Today’s late night hosts, though, are now more activist than comedian, from Jimmy Kimmel to Jimmy Fallon to Seth Meyers to Stephen Colbert. They push for far-left policies, defend Democrats at every turn and rip Republicans nightly.
But that’s all about to change. Conservatives (and those just looking for some laughs) will finally have something to watch. A new late-night comedy show called DWECK is coming in early 2019, and The Daily Wire has an exclusive first look at the trailer that you can watch below. (Oh, and it’s profane, but just because it features triggered late-night talk show hosts and Hollywood celebrities.)
The series was created by Victor Dweck and Tom Leopold. Dweck is relatively new to professional comedy, having started only a few years ago. Leopold, on the other hand, is an uber-successful sitcom veteran who has written some of the most famous episodes of “Seinfeld,” “Cheers,” “Will & Grace,” and more. The two met for lunch at a deli in New York about a year ago and hit it off right away.
“I remember being nervous to sit down with the great Tom Leopold, I mean, he’s written for the White House. But he was just so fun to be around and we clicked instantly. Also, he bought my pastrami.” Dweck said.
Said Leopold: “I’ve been lucky enough to work with most of the great comedians of our time, and I know the real thing when I see it. Victor Dweck is the real thing. And he also makes me laugh until I wheeze! Remember, I told you so!”
We caught up with Dweck and asked him about the show’s politics:
“We created the show because we couldn’t watch late night anymore, it’s just too hateful and insulting to people who like our president. However, with our show, we put comedy above all else, and we’re careful not to label ourselves ‘conservative comedy.’ That being said, we are both proud conservatives by today’s definition, and you will definitely see that come out in what we choose to satirize.”
The show’s creators will formally announce details on the series including where it’s airing in the coming weeks. “We’re wrapping everything up and getting ready for an exciting launch.”
