Charlamagne Tha God is leaving ”The Breakfast Club” for his own talk show on Comedy Central. Long time friend Chris McCarthy, president of the Entertainment and Youth Group at Comedy Central’s parent company ViacomCBS, revealed his deal with Charlamagne Tuesday in a story about his more extensive efforts to reinvent Comedy Central as a multiplatform group.
“Charlamagne’s voice is very right for today,” he said. “It’s fresh and real and resonating in a way that very few can do.”
While not too much has been revealed about the format of the new show, Charlamagne says it will “borrow some elements of cable news and other weekly topical talk shows”. However, he is promising the conversations won’t feel like a typical TV talker.
”I’m not going to be on here trying to rehash the whole week. Like, no. That’s not what I’m here for. I want to talk about the things that can actually impact somebody’s life, in a real way — the things that can actually help move the culture forward.
