Kathy Griffin is set to play Kellyanne Conway in the upcoming Comedy Central special “Make America Great-a-Thon: A President Show Special,” the network announced on Thursday.
Premiering Tuesday, April 3, the hourlong special stars “The President Show” creator Anthony Atamanuik as Donald Trump, hosting a telethon from the Oval Office to raise money for the projects he can’t get Congress to fund.
Peter Grosz will co-star as Vice President Mike Pence.
Griffin’s appearance in the special marks another wade into politics months after losing a string of live appearances and a regular gig at CNN over a controversial photo of her posing with a facsimile of Trump’s bloody, decapitated head.
In addition to Atamanuik and Grosz, “Make America Great-a-thon” is executive produced by Adam Pally, Jason Ross, and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman and Greg Walter. Emmy Blotnick and Suzanne Fagel co-executive produce. The Wolf Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment co-production is directed by Andre Allen.
